The 2020s are going to be an important decade for the cargo bike. The climate crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic, and a discernible shift towards more sustainable lifestyles have encouraged both city users and city authorities to reconsider urban mobility.
Sharing the Load is the first report to specifically examine non-commercial cargo bike use in London. It considers the attitudes, experiences, and motivations of cargo bike users within the context of the capital’s urban environment and transport policy landscape. In determining what will either promote or prevent greater non-commercial cargo bike use in London, six key metrics were analysed, and a range of insights was subsequently gained. The report concludes by identifying three key findings and making three policy recommendations, designed to encourage greater non-commercial cargo bike use in London in the months and years ahead.
