Please provide a source that shows how ebikes (or cycling for that matter) reduces congestion?
I ask because how do you know that ebikes and cyclists were previously driving vehicles and were not using pubic transport?
Hence their use undermines the PT for all
Source? Below is a photo of Amsterdam in 1970's before their cycling revolution. I bring ebike into equation of subsidies because unlike Amsterdam, which was built flat, most of NZ is not and the ebike flattens the roads.
your link didnt answer the question
1. As 32% of traffic movement in Amsterdam is by bike compared to 22% by car and 16% by public transport. In the city centre, 48% of traffic movement is by bike.
That would imply biking undermines the public transport system?
2. In 2018, the average Netherlands biking distance per person per day amounted to approximately 3.4 and 3 kilometers for men and women respectively.
Thats only a return journey from Railway station to Taranaki St - which is nowhere near the planned distances for Wellington cycle commuters
