Employee E-bike Discounts

The TRU Employee E-Bike Purchase program allows employees to apply for an incentive of 10 percent off the purchase value of an e-bike, up to $300 total.

To assist in the purchase of higher-value bikes, employees that have permanent, full-time status may apply for financing with up to a two-year repayment period (minimum of $500 purchase price and maximum of $5,000), and employees on a contract term with TRU may apply for financing up to the end of their contract term.

Please email the completed form along with a copy of your receipt to

If you require financing please indicate this in your email. Payroll will contact you with the additional information. If you want to talk about which e-bike might be best for you, or want help with the details of the paperwork, please contact

Seasonal Commuter Parking Pass

As a thank-you to employees for using alternative transportation, TRU is offering a seasonal commuter parking permit to cyclists. Register your bike with the Sustainability Office to be eligible for a Seasonal Commuter permit valid from Nov. 15 to Mar. 15 for either economy ($200) or general ($250) lots. To register, simply email the Sustainability Office with a picture of your bicycle and a description of where it will be parked on campus (your typical parking spot).

Cycle until mid-November, park your vehicle during winter weather, resume cycling in March, and save the equivalent of one semester of parking! Up to 100 permits are available (first-come, first-served). Register with the Sustainability Office by Nov. 10, 2023, then purchase your seasonal commuter permit on the Hangtag portal after creating a profile. The Parking Office will approve the permit request and you are able to park effective Nov. 15.

E-Bike and E-Scooter Demonstrations

e-scooter and e-bike

Our e-bike and e-scooter demonstration program lets any TRU community member try one (or both) for free for up to 30 minutes around the campus so you can make a more informed decision about whether you want to buy your own.

Both are great options for environmentally friendly, simple and cost-effective transportation.

E-Bike and E-Scooter demos are available Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. with three demo options:

  1. A large Raleigh Hardtail Mountain Bike with a Bosch electric drive
  2. A medium Cannondale CUJO NEO 2 e-bike
  3. A 500W Synergy Ride Electric Scooter
