Use soft mobility
Since the Léman Express began full service on 15 December 2019, 80% of housing and 85% of jobs in the canton are now less than 1.5 km from a station, making cycling a great way to have access to the train. Similarly, once in place, the Act for coherent and balanced transport will make soft mobility a priority mode of transport in urban centres.
As a result, cycling will play an unprecedented role in daily and leisure travel. Thanks to optimised connections with public transport, the creation of new, safe and unbroken bike paths and an increase in bicycle parking spaces, cycling will become one of the most efficient means of transport.
In order to encourage this further, a financial support programme for purchasing electrically-assisted bicycles has been in place since 2010. In 2020, this offer will be divided in three parts, meaning you can customise your programme the way you like.
Please note that self-employed workers and small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) can also benefit from the various subsidies, for up to 15 units per subsidy type and per company.
