Charging Ahead : Increasing UBC's Sustainable Mode Share with E-Bikes Craig, Chelsea; Farias, Adriana Valentina; Park, Jimin; Kathuria, Pulkit; Pagnucco, Bruce; Pan, Charles; Wang, Xuerou


UBC aims to achieve a sustainable mode share of 67% by 2040. Currently, 55% of trips to and from UBC are made by sustainable modes, with only 1.4% of trips made by bicycle. E-bikes could play a significant role in bridging this gap as they enable more people to switch from commuting by single-occupancy vehicle to a sustainable mode.
