Studded bike tire rebate back for second year

Studded Bike Tire

Council committed $4,000 to bring back the studded bike tire rebate for a second year. The first year of the rebate was a great success, with all funds being used by residents to purchase studded tires for easier winter cycling. While Banff has some of the highest active commuting rates during summer in Canada, according to the 2017 census only 2% bike to work in the winter. With studded tires, cycling becomes much easier and safer, allowing for year-round transportation. 

New this year, Banff Access Program members will be able to receive a $60 per tire rebate, and non-access members will receive a $40 per tire rebate. These amounts are a significant savings on the cost of most studded tires, which range in price from $70 to $200 per tire (or more for studded fat bike tires).  Information on how to access the rebate is available at https://banff.ca/701/Residential-Environmental-Rebates
