An introduction to commons Cargobike sharing

Since the launch of the first initiative „Kasimir“ 2013 in Cologne, Germany, commons cargo bike sharing has become a movement with more than 100 independent initiatives in Germany, Austria and Hungary.

A „Commons Cargobike“:

  • makes cargo bikes available to all free of charge (donation-based).
  • is a „common good“: to be shared instead of individually owned.
  • is advocating for a change of mind in urban transportation, and represents resource conservation & sustainable traffic.
  • relies on neighborhood cooperation: Cafés, private citizens and social facilities are acting as pickup location.
