The Hradec Králové Region has a new grant program to support sustainable mobility through a shared bike service. Through it, it plans to distribute four million Czech crowns.

Every municipality in the region, including the statutory city of Hradec Králové, has the opportunity to apply for up to a 70 percent subsidy. The maximum support amount is 500,000 Czech crowns, representatives of the regional authority informed ČTK. Municipalities can apply for the subsidy from February 29 to March 13.

„The key conditions are that using the bikes must be free for the first 15 minutes and that the service must be available for at least six months a year. The goal of the program is to motivate municipalities to introduce or continue the shared bike service, thus offering an alternative to individual car transport,“ said Dan Lechmann, spokesperson for the regional authority.

The development of sustainable transport is part of the Development Strategy of Hradec Králové Region and also of their Strategy for Cycling Transport until 2035.

„Shared bikes are becoming an increasingly popular choice for short-distance travel. Providing the first 15 minutes for free serves as support for those who use this form of transport on their way to work or in connection with train or bus,“ stated Adam Valenta (Piráti), councilor for regional development.

In Hradec Králové Region a shared bike service is supported by the cities of Hradec Králové, Dvůr Králové nad Labem, Rychnov nad Kněžnou, Vrchlabí, Jičín, and Hořice, and this spring Trutnov will also join. According to the regional authority, the region is becoming a leader in the number of cities offering this service.
