Vejle Municipality decided to let 50 citizens lend an ebike for 6 months. The intention was to see if more people would convert to ebikes from i.e. cars.
After the experiment 25% of de participants responded that they wanted an ebike of their own and 68% responded maybe. The most common ebike tester was women aged 46-55 years, employed and without children living in their home. Most of them were used to drive alone in a car.
An ebike does fit living in Vejle due to the hilly terrain and reducing dependence on a car or public transportation.
