Bari goes by bike, a little important revolution

Riding to work can pay you up to 25 euro/month. Not bad when city is flat, small and with a fantastic Mediterranean weather all year long.

Bari will be the first city to pay workers to commute by bike.

The system will be based on the number of kilometers the workers will do in their commute and can bring up to 25 euro per month. A little contribution, but surely appreciated by bikers. Probably even more is the additional contribution to purchase a bike too. With discounts from 150 euro for traditional bikes to 250 for electric ones.

Goal and good sign

All with the goal to reduce the pollution in the city which had sparked back in November and December due also to the intense traffic in the city which had often caused heavy congestions.

And a good signal from a more traditional city of the South towards a better focus to the environment.
