Background & policy context: 

The large-scale introduction and application of cargo bikes in urban areas has shown to be a game changer for cities: the image of cycling improves; general levels of cycling increase (both for freight and passengers); urban space is used more efficiently; air quality, safety levels as well as quality of life improve. However, this innovative solution is present in only a few cities and at best in the starting phase in other European cities. Its full potential has not been achieved in any European city.

Objectives: 

CityChangerCargoBike (CCCB) aims to change this and increase and accelerate take-up. CCCB will take the very best cargo bike implementation examples, contexts and expertise in Europe and profit and learn from them in order to transfer these on a large scale and in the best way possible to new cities and contexts - in CCCB's forerunner cities, in the follower cities and beyond.

CCCB is based on the huge potential of cargo bikes to replace:

  • 23 - 25% of the commercial deliveries in cities
  • 50% of the commercial service and maintenance trips
  • 77% of private logistics trips (shopping, leisure, child transport)

Further, cargo bikes bring with them a whole new bicycle culture: new fashionable multi-purpose cargo bike designs, cargo bike shops, new logistics concepts. Stationary cargo bikes can quickly be transformed to mobile street furniture and then even fulfil a place maker function.

CCCB has the following objectives:

  • Raise awareness among the relevant stakeholders: public, private and commercial sector.
  • Utilise innovative tools for the take-up and scale-up and transfer between forerunner and follower cities: e.g. peer-to-peer exchange.
  • Establish favourable framework conditions for cargo bike use.
  • Achieve wide roll-out and transferability through Forerunner cities, Follower cities (within the consortium) and External follower cities.
  • Reduce congestion, emissions; increase safety; increase public space and improve public space usage.
