National cycling plan 3.0

legislation type Executive
Plan
Passed in 2021
The latest version of this plan recognises the enormous potential of cycling to reduce emissions and to produce a range of local economic and health co-benefits. It aims at ramping up cycling use in the country with a vision to 2030. 

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.
