More information the Greens want to spend one billion euros in the next legislative period to promote cargo bicycles. A million cargo bikes should be funded by the federal government, each with a grant of 1,000 euros, the Green Budget politician Sven-Christian Kindler told the Editorial Network Germany (RND). Unlike previously privately used cargo bikes, privately should be entitled to a subsidy. Currently, only companies, municipalities or associations can apply for funding."Clean mobility is not available for free," said Kindler. Laddies are of significant importance in the turn of the traffic. Many craftsmen and small business owners could also offer their services and trips with e-cargo bikes. For them there are too few funding. The same applies to loan systems for e-cargo bikes and for families who wanted to buy a cargo bike.Better promotion of the cycling infrastructure can also be found in the election program of the Greens for the Bundestag election on 26. September, but without mentioning a specific funding amount. "We strengthen the federal funding and advisory services for the expansion and modernization of the cycling infrastructure, create a powerful competence center of cycling and subsidies to buy job and cargo bikes as well as S-Pedelecs," it says.
"No miracle tool", but "economically not so bad"
Experts do not necessarily consider the promotion of cargo bicycles to be effective, but also not wrong. Matthias Huber, professor of energy industry and intelligent infrastructure at the Technical University of Deggendorf, wrote on Twitter, wrote on Twitter. “With the best will in the world, I can’t imagine it for craftsmen.“However, the lower space requirement compared to a car is a real advantage, because parking spaces are indirectly highly subsidized in large cities, especially in large cities. "When four cargo bikes park instead of a car, it is no longer so bad," writes Huber. “Even at the village kindergarten, parking spaces are scarce."The cargo bike is" not a miracle tool ", but the proposed subsidy is" not so much compared to other."
FDP scolds about "Mogelpack"
Sharp criticism came from the FDP. "The Greens want to operate clientele policy with the money of taxpayers," said vice-parliamentary group spokesman Christian Durr on Sunday of the AFP news agency. For efficient climate protection, no further "bureaucratic mini subsidies, but a comprehensive emission trade with hard CO2 lids are needed," said Durr. That is the best way to reduce CO2 emissions and achieve the climate goals.Durr asked the Greens to work together with the FDP to extend the certificate trade to all industries "instead of losing further in the small small". For the parliamentary managing director of the FDP parliamentary group, Marco Buschmann, the cargo bike bonus is not an investment, but the subsidization of consumption. “If you call the investment, it is a mock pack!“, Buschmann wrote on Twitter.
CSU: "Majority of people has nothing of it"
Union faction vice Ulrich Lange (CSU) refused Kindler’s idea. Only in the inner -city area could cargo bicycles be a meaningful instrument, he told the "world". Much of it lives in the country. “The majority of people have nothing of the Greens’ proposal, except that they should pay for it."Left-wing parliamentary group leader Amira Mohamed Ali told the" Welt "that cargo bikes could help in some cities," in rural regions they help practically nobody ". Anyone who believes that with state promotion of cargo bicycles can initiate the traffic turnaround is on the wrong track. “Instead, local public transport should be expanded consistently, and ticket prices must decrease."
