French government releases financial package to encourage cycling after quarantine ends

Performed by: French Government

Country: France

In April 2020, French government announced the creation of a 20 million euro fund to encourage the French population to use bicycles in the post-quarantine period of the Coronavirus.

The fund’s money, administered by the Ministry of Ecological and Inclusive Transition, will be used to pay an incentive of 50 euros per person for those who want to finance repairs to their bikes. The amount will also be used to support the costs of installing temporary bicycle parking spaces and to provide training for those who wish to learn how to ride a bicycle safely.
