One main goal of the smart city strategy of the City of Vienna is to decrease the number of fossil-fueled vehicles within the city. One way of doing that is using cargo bikes for freight transport in urban areas. Although cycling per se enjoys increasing popularity in Vienna, the number of cargo bikes used for commercial transport is still low. Therefore, the aim of this project is to compare the situation for the commercial use of cargo bikes in Vienna with the respective situation in Budapest, Munich and Copenhagen. The comparison is based on a literature review as well as on expert interviews conducted in all four cities. Subsequently, these results are transformed in recommendations for measures, which seem appropriate to increase the number of commercially used cargo bikes in the City of Vienna.
