Cargo Bikes will improve the quality of life in our cities by fully exploiting their huge potential as a sustainable means of transport for private and commercial logistics and for semi-stationary use.
Karl Reiter, projectmanager at City Changer Cargo Bike (CCCB) will guide us through some of the expected results and impact on using cargo bikes in our cities, such as:
- Reducing congestion and emissions; increasing safety and quality of public space through increased cargo bike ownership and use
- Creation of new business opportunities
- Development of new funding schemes for cargo bike ownership
- Workshops and trainings for a broad variety of target groups
- Establishment of favourable framework conditions for cargo bike use
Through support of the Horizon2020 programme, CCCB brings together a team of 20 partners from Norway to Greece, the United Kingdom to Bulgaria. Learning from best practice across Europe, CCCB will raise awareness and support the uptake of cargo bikes and cargo bike initiatives. In doing so we will foster exciting developments that, among other things, offer more sustainable logistics operations, improve public spaces, engage citizens, and reduce traffic congestion. The initiative will also work to get cargo bikes in European cities by developing new financing schemes and providing opportunities to test cargo bikes.
