Get Paid to Pedal

$400 Towards Your New Bike

goDCgo is teaming up with local bike shops to help DC residents become bicycle owners. For a limited time, we’re giving income-eligible District residents $400 toward the purchase of a new bike or a discount of 50% on a bike repair. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis dependent on available funds. 

Step 1: Apply

Apply to see if you qualify for a $400 bike voucher or 50% off a bike repair (up to $400). This is an income eligible program.

Step 2: Notification

If you are accepted into the program, you'll receive an email notification and digital bike voucher. Those who do not have reliable internet access or an email account will receive their voucher via mail. You'll have up to 3 months to redeem your voucher. Vouchers are non-transferrable and can only be used once.

Step 3: Redeem

Go to one of the participating bike shops to purchase a bike or bike repair. You'll need to show your voucher and a valid unexpired state ID (such as a drivers license or ID card). You will be responsible for paying the difference between your voucher and the cost of your bike/bike repair on the day of purchase.

Bike Purchase: If you applied for a bike purchase voucher, the voucher will be for up to $400. That means goDCgo will pay $400 towards your bike. If the total bike purchase is over $400 you will be responsible for paying for the rest of the purchase. If your bike is $400 or under (including tax), goDCgo will pay for your bike in full. If your bike purchase is under $400, the remaining amount is NOT available for cash back or to purchase accessories. 

Bike Repair: goDCgo will pay 50% of your bike repair up to $400. For example:

  • If your bike repair costs $350 – goDCgo will pay $175 of that and you would pay the other $175. 
  • If your bike repairs costs $900 – goDCgo will pay $400 of that and you would pay the rest. 

If you provided us with an email address and you’ve been approved you will receive your voucher within 2 weeks. Mailed vouchers may take up to 4 weeks to arrive.
