The audience heard from US and UK e-bike scheme managers in this WeRide webinar facilitated by World Bank Sustainable Transport Analyst, Sam Johnson.

Together with Australia’s own Lug+Carrie, how UK and USA schemes are successfully shifting local transport choice to e-bikes was examined by our guest speakers.

There was an extensive Q&A covering many pertinent issues that the experts who manage these programs were able to answer.
