In Salzburg there is a new subsidy for bicycle parking spaces. If someone builds new parking spaces or refurbishes old ones, applicants can get some of the costs back. The country wants to motivate more people to cycle.
Traveling less by car and even more by bike, this also includes the possibility of being able to park the bike safely and comfortably with or without a trailer.
Land pays up to 100 euros
Free parking spaces at companies, club rooms or apartment buildings are funded. The bicycle parking system must be close to the building entrance and be barrier-free. According to the Funding guidelines Applicants receive 100 euros per bike rack. However, there are restrictions, a maximum of 30 percent of the costs are paid and a maximum of 20 parking spaces per building are funded. The state not only pays for new bike racks, the renovation of bicycle parking facilities is also eligible for funding.
The aim of the funding is to increase the share of cycling and thus to reduce CO2 emissions in Salzburg. All of this is part of the “Climate and Energy Strategy SALZBURG 2050”.
