The Brussels government approved a new mobility plan for businesses that would force big businesses to offer two alternatives to providing their employees with a company car, l’Echo revealed on Saturday.
A draft version of the project was leaked to the press at the beginning of May. It concerns businesses that have more than 100 workers or more than 10 vehicles. From 2018, they will need to have a travel plan offering their employees three options: a classic car package, a cheaper car coupled with a ticket, or a bike (a “mobility” package). The latter could include advantages like subscriptions for shared cars, self-service bikes, taxi cheques, etc.
This means businesses will have until the 30th of June to look into their mobility plans internally. They will have six months to draw up an action plan based on these new obligations, L’Echo said.
