National cycling plan 3.0
Cycling is emission-free and saves space - and is therefore a central component of sustainable mobility. Against this background, the Federal Government feels that the promotion of cycling is of great importance. The basis for this is the National Cycling Plan, which the federal government has now redesigned.
Compared to 2019, the number of cyclists killed in traffic will be reduced by 40% – despite significantly more cycling.
In 2019, 41% of Germans planned to cycle more in the future. This approval rating will rise to 60% by 2030.
The average length of trips made by bicycle will increase from 3.7 kilometres to six kilometres.
The number of trips will increase from about 120 in 2017 to 180 trips per person per year.
