    Last year, 860 ‘Bruxell’Air bonuses’ were awarded in Brussels to people who gave up their cars to help prioritise eco transport solutions, like public transport, e-bikes and shared cars.

    The number has increased in comparison to the 631 bonuses awarded in 2017, according to STIB’s figures.

    The Bruxell’Air bonus, created in 2006, aims to encourage Brussels inhabitants to give up their cars in favour of alternatives that respect the environment more.

    People who live in one of the 19 Brussels communes and give up their registration plate will receive an annual ticket for public transport as well as a yearly subscription to Cambio Start car sharing. Another option is an “e-bike bonus” (505 euros maximum) linked to an annual subscription of car sharing.
