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.
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.
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.
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.
Use the button below to start your application. Applications are short and take under 5 minutes to complete. You’ll need to know your yearly income and provide a DC mailing address to complete the application.
