Flemish people buy electronic bicycles mainly for their commute between work and home

In Flanders, electronic bicycles are being bought for the commute between work and home more and more often. One third (34%) of Flemish people who have an electronic bicycle use it for their commute, according to a VAB mobility poll done on Saturday. It was true for just 21% of people in 2015. This year’s poll involved 2,000 people.

The number of people who own electronic bicycles in Flanders has shot up from 6% to 15% in the space of three years.

The VAB says there is massive potential in electronic bicycles as a substitute for cars. “The task for employers is to make motorists switch to alternatives”, says the Flemish mobility organisation. “Public transport is reaching its limit and is not a possible option for a lot of people. It is clear that electronic bicycles have the biggest potential to reduce the use of cars”.
