Further development of pedelec infrastructure is one of the national government’s major objectives. Project proposals until 1 August 2014. LEV Conference informs on 3 October 2014.
Both the National Cycle Traffic Plan (NRVP) 2020 and the coalition agreement between the CDU, CSU and SPD parties commit to developing solutions for the integration of pedelecs into mobility concepts.
Objectives include discovering the most realistic ways to combine the use of different modes of transport, supporting future-oriented projects around the public transport/car-sharing/cycling interface (coalition agreement p. 33), and unified charging infrastructure (NRVP p. 49). In such a fast-developing market these fundamentals must be swiftly established, states the National Cycle Traffic Plan 2020.
