We are passionate about mobility and sustainable cities.

We believe that cargo bikes are a piece of the big transport puzzle.
Through pilots initiatives within the CoBiUM project,
we learned the success factors and challenges
of establishing cargo bikes in cities and organizations.

 

The focus of the conference is small and medium-sized cities, presenting tools, examples, and methods to overcome challenges and address your community's transportation needs. Compared to big cities and megacities, the small and medium-sized cities normally have their own specific conditions to consider, which requires specific investigations and solutions.
