Buckhead Community Bank offering bike financing to encourage people to bike to work

Go Green Intown (of the Atlanta Intown Paper) posted a story on their blog about Buckhead Community Bank (BCB) teaming up with Buckhead Area Transportation Management Association (BATMA) to give account holders the opportunity to borrow $2,500 towards the purchase of a bike.

A few details:

  • Open up a MAX Reward checking account with Buckhead Community Bank
  • Apply for a 12-month, 0% APR loan towards a bike purchase of up to $2,500
  • Earn 4% Annual Percentage yield on your checking account with no maintenance or ATM fees
  • Make 10 signature-based debit card transactions
  • Receive monthly statements electronically through online banking
  • Make at least one direct deposit or automatic payment

In addition to a bike loan, BAMTA is also offering cash incentives for people to hop on their bikes to work. New bikers can earn $3 a day up to $100 over three months. And for commuting 3 or more days a week, you can earn a $20 gift card. Worried about the weather? You will also be rewarded with up to five free taxi rides in case of bad weather or emergencies.
