Nelson City Council has a Travel Demand Management programme to implement initiatives to encourage active transport choices, to reduce congestion and the single vehicle occupancy on short trips.
Travel Demand Management promotes the adoption of alternative modes of transport to free up urban city spaces from private vehicles.
One of the initiatives of Travel Demand Management is to encourage the uptake of cycling to and from work.
Electric Bikes (e-bikes) represent one solution to encourage active transport choices, to reduce congestion and the single vehicle occupancy on short trips but can be a prohibitively high-priced solution.
Council’s Regional Land Transport Plan includes relevant objectives and community outcomes of including more transport choice.
Council seeks the following benefits from the purchase of fleet e-bikes and the facilitation of staff purchases of e-bikes:
(a) Council seen to be supporting the Regional Land Transport Plan by use of fleet e-bikes
(b) Increased staff use of e-bikes including staff purchase and use of these

1.1.1. At least one store in the Nelson/Tasman region
1.1.2. Employs at least 3 local staff in the Nelson/Tasman region
1.1.3. Business established in the Nelson/Tasman region for at least 2 years
