About this Event
NYCDOT aims to promote street and fire safety by establishing a program to replace substandard micromobility devices with e-bikes that meet standards specified in §20-610 of the New York City Administrative Code, which pertains to certification of compliance with safety standards related to the e-bikes' electrical systems. To develop such a program, NYCDOT is looking to better understand the product specifications of mobility equipment available in the market that meets the following criteria:
- Devices must be class 1 or class 2 e-bikes, as defined by §102-C of the Vehicle and Traffic Law.
- E-bikes and their batteries must be certified pursuant to §20-610 of the Administrative Code.
- E-bikes must be durable and able to withstand the demands of use for commercial purposes, particularly delivery or courier services.
Event participants are invited to showcase up to three e-bikes with their respective batteries. At the event, participants would be expected to:
- Bring specification sheets for all relevant electric e-bike and battery models.
- Bring proof of certification of all relevant e-bike models by an accredited testing laboratory for compliance with Underwriters Laboratories (UL) standard 2849.
- Bring proof of certification of all relevant storage battery models by an accredited testing laboratory for compliance with Underwriters Laboratories (UL) standard 2271.
- Bring a physical model of at least one e-bike without its battery.
In addition to e-bikes manufacturers, NYCDOT is seeking to engage companies capable of assisting local government entities in purchasing, storing, and transporting e-bikes and e-bike batteries, in compliance with U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 C.F.R., Parts 171-180).
