The Lab is working with Ridepanda, a bike and e-bike leasing company, to bring pedal and e-bike leasing to the Lab community with a special offer exclusively for Lab staff.* 

“We think having an e-bike option is one of the best ways to get people thinking about sustainable commute alternatives,” said Berkeley Lab’s Transportation & Parking Demand Senior Manager John Chernowski. “The last mile, as it is known, is getting you from home to public transit and public transit to work. E-bikes provide that tool.” 

For others who live closer to the Lab, the Ridepanda pedal and e-bikes are also an option. If you don’t want to tackle Cyclotron Road, bike to a Lab shuttle stop and ride in comfort inside the shuttle while your bike rides in a bike rack.  

Ridepanda offers a range of vehicles starting at $59 per month, which includes theft insurance, a helmet, and a lock.

To get started, visit the Lab’s special Ridepanda website. You can then take a look at vehicle options and book a test ride or join your colleagues on Tuesday, June 25, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Lot J near buildings 50, 70, and 91.

* Lab Promotion: The first 80 customers will get $50 per month off the regularly-priced e-bike lease for the first 12 months of the lease.
