Electric bikes, or e-bikes, are close substitutes for cars and two-wheelers because they cover longer distances with less effort. Thus, e-bikes will play a key role in shifting passenger and freight trips away from high-polluting private vehicles and generating fewer emissions if used at scale.

This report examines the current conditions of walking and cycling in cities. It reviews the literature on the potential benefits of active mobility, highlighting the importance of moving away from car-centric development. It also explores how cities developed into car-centric environments, with a particular focus on moto-normative assumptions.

Micromobility technologies, primarily consisting of e-cycles and low-speed e-mopeds, have been proliferating across the Global South. Low cost of operations, ease of use and charging/swapping are the primary drivers facilitating the uptake of these technologies.

With increased urbanization and economic growth, cities across the world must find ways to meet urban mobility demands while ensuring transportation is affordable and emissions that contribute to climate change are limited.

This report is a first attempt at gathering, analysing and presenting data to demonstrate the everyday reality for the one billion people in Africa who walk and cycle every day. It baselines conditions in all 54 African countries using existing data sources interpreted through a walking and cycling lens and highlights inspiring best practices.

Cycling has significant economic benefits—for individuals, cities, and society—and functions as a low-cost, high-yield, scalable solution to climate and equity issues. Investments in cycling infrastructure also create jobs and opportunities to expand existing industries or develop new ones.

Choosing to cycle once a day can reduce an individual’s carbon emissions by 67%! Cycles also represent an accessible, sustainable mode of travel to a majority of the Indian population, most of them using the vehicle for livelihood. But, that’s not all. Cycles also empower women, and possess the ability to bridge the gender gap on our streets.

The Delhi Electric Vehicle Policy 2020 was approved vide Cabinet Decision No.2796 dated 23.12.2019 and the same was notified on 07.08.2020. The Policy will remain valid for a period of three years. This document provides the operational guidelines for delivery of demand incentives for e-cycles offered under this policy i.e.

Roads are not only relatively empty of cars.

The Paris region wants to boost the number of people who cycle to work by investing in new cycle lanes and infrastructure and a subsidised electric bike rental scheme.
