EBike loans through Transport Scotland: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Information requested

The total cost of implementing the scheme, the total of loans awarded, and the total repaid towards these loans since the schemes introduction.


While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have some of the information you have requested. This is because the programme costs for the ebike loan in financial years 2018-19 and 2019-20 were not disaggregated from the overall cost of the Low Carbon Transport Loan.

The information that is held is set out below:

Year Programme Costs
2020-21 £143,797
2021-22 £216,242
2022-23 £235,812

The total of loans awarded (as of 31/1/2023): £9,019,230
