Brighton & Hove City Council was awarded the eCargo Bike Grant Fund from the Department for Transport in May 2020. 

Since then we have supported 25 local businesses to make the switch from petrol or diesel delivery vehicles to a third party eCargo bike delivery company. 

To encourage local businesses to switch delivery trips to ecargo bikes instead of using vans, we offer a £125 subsidy to make this change.  

If your company wants to reduce its carbon footprint in the city and wants to make a change, email transport.projects@brighton-hove.gov.uk to find out about our eCargo bike subsidy.   

So far over 18,000 miles have been cycled using eCargo bikes to deliver services and goods across the city. That’s about 6.9 metric tonnes of CO2 saved by the Council and local businesses using eCargo bikes. To put that into perspective, one tonne of CO2 is almost twice the size of a double decker bus (556.2m3).
