Many companies now days give employees $100 (or more) for buying a bike.  The city could offer residents $100 tax credit (one per taxpayer) after they submit the receipt for their bike.

Describe who will use your solution (1,000 characters)

Anyone who could use or would like a bike but can't afford it.

Describe your solution's stage of development

  • Initial Design - you are still exploring the idea and have not tested it with users

Tell us about your team or organization (500 characters)

No team, just thinking of a way I can get the city to give back some of the taxpayers hard-earned dollars that would also possibly maybe a little bit cause more people to ride bikes.

Size of your team or organization

  • I am submitting as an individual

Funding Request

  • No funding is required

Describe how you would pilot your idea (1000 characters)

I wouldn't.

Hi Ross: Welcome back to the forum and thanks for the proposal. Your idea is a creative way to incentivize bike riding. But you don't want to lead the effort or make it happen?
