Revisiting the "e-Radschnellweg"-Project - HNA Article


As part of the project "e-Radschnellweg" (2012-2016) the SMRG has carried out an extensive field test program with rental pedelecs. The effect of infrastructure improvements on commuters' choice of means of transport was investigated, as well as how employees can be interested in bicycle electromobility. To this end, the behavioral patterns of future cyclists were measured before and after the implementation of the adjustments of the infrastructure. In the HNA newspaper article the project is revisited and the future of bicycle traffic in Göttingen is under discussion.
