United States Mobility Insights

People are switching from cars to e-bikes faster than ever before. This is changing what our cities look like. We'd like to share data about the impact VanMoof riders are making.

Why the future of mobility belongs to e-bikes

When Carl Benz received approval for his first gas-powered vehicle in 1886, nobody could have known we would find ourselves in a climate change emergency 135 years later. In The United States alone, 411 grams of CO2 emissions are currently emitted per mile driven by car. Our cities are too polluted, we need cleaner alternatives.

The revolution of sustainable mobility

There are more and more investments in sustainable mobility efforts across the US right now. Los Angeles has already built 1,190 miles of bike lanes, specifically designed for e-bike commuters to glide through the hills and valleys. In Washington D.C., cyclists can enjoy 48 miles of bike lanes stretching across the city for a healthy, eco-friendly commute. And New York has announced that Manhattan's Brooklyn Bridge will double its bike lane space.

The USA is ready to embrace e-bikes

Our US VanMoof riders are leading the way, and stand out in comparison to the rest in the world.

The future of mobility in The United States

Across the USA the landscape for cleaner mobility alternatives is changing. Los Angeles is one of the frontrunners of bike friendly US cities. Local authorities have already made sure that 1,190 miles of bike lanes are now present in the city. Another bike friendly city is the city of Washington D. C.. Over 48 miles of bike lanes are currently in use. Also the federal government is now working on the E-bike Act, meaning 30% tax credit for e-bike purchases.

Protected bike lanes cost $20,000-100,000 per mile to build, versus $1 million for car lanes. Maintaining bike lanes is also much cheaper than car lanes. For example, the City of Portland calculated in 2013 that the city’s entire bicycle network, consisting of over 300 miles of bikeways would cost $60 million to replace (2008 dollars), whereas the same investment would yield just one mile of a four-lane urban freeway.

The Future

"E-bikes make everyone healthier. They reduce society’s reliance on cars and lower greenhouse gas emissions. They increase productivity and space in our cities. They transform commuting from the worst part of your day into the best. As we look towards a post-Covid future, they will play a central role in our green recovery."
