Zadar became a pilot city for the use of electric bicycles and scooters.

Zadar, as a pilot city with other pilot cities in Europe, as well as pilot projects will help in achieving the objectives and the promotion of the use of electric bikes and scooters for transportation of goods and people / passengers.
PRO-E-BIKE project promotes clean and energy efficient vehicles, electric bicycles and electric scooters (common name “E – bikes”), for delivery of goods and passenger transport among private and public bodies such as delivery companies, public administration and citizens in European urban areas, as an alternative to “conventionally fossil fueled” vehicles. The main target groups are companies or delivery companies that deliver their products or services (eg. fast food, health care, etc.) and public administration in the pilot cities. For this purpose Zadar will set up the appropriate number of charging stations for e-bikes in their area. Also, Zadar will, where possible, set the solar charging station.

Therefore, PRO-E-BIKE aims for a change in behaviour of target groups in urban areas manifested in their decision to replace their conventionally fuelled vehicles with E- bikes.
Otherwise, the project runs from April 2013 to March 2016. The total value is 1.3 million euros. The project consortium consists of 10 partners from seven European countries and a leading partner is the Croatian Energy Institute Hrvoje Požar.

Overall, by the actions predicted by PRO-E-BIKE the hope is to shift urban delivery transport from fossil fuel delivery vehicles toward E-bike vehicles, and in that way not only to reduce noise and pollution in urban areas, but as well to reduce congestion, save energy and to create new market opportunities for local economy.

So, as the slogan says :“Get on bike and e-drive with us for clean air!”
