E-bikes contribute to an increase in peoples bicycle use by between 12 and 18 km per week, if they replace their usual bike, with an e-bike. This means that the bike share (cycling as a proportion of all traveled kilometers) could double compared with the current level, for people who get support for buying an e-bike. This is according to data from the largest ever survey done on e-bikes effect on transport mode, where a total of 669 freshly baked e-bike owners have been interviewed. This survey is also unique since the transport usage also was measured using a mobile app (measuring all trips). Overall, these data showed that CO2 emissions were reduced by somewhere between 440 and 720 grams per day for each participant that received support by the municipality to buy an e-bike.
