Sustainable mobility with SBB Green Class E-Bike.
With SBB Green Class E-Bike, SBB is aiming to test a combined offer, which connects environmentally sound transport on the roads with public transport.
The average Swiss person already travels 36.7 kilometres per day. Forecasts indicate that passenger traffic will increase by 25 percent by 2040. Flexible and sustainable mobility solutions are required in order to manage this increase. That’s why SBB is venturing onto the streets to make sure that the first and last mile between your home and the station and vice versa can be covered in a quick and environmentally friendly way.
SBB and its established partner SwissPass offer seamless door-to-door mobility in collaboration with myStromer AG, one of the leading e-bike manufacturers, and m-way, one of the largest e-bike specialists in Switzerland. With SBB Green Class E-Bike, SBB is aiming to test a combined offer, which connects environmentally sound transport on the roads with public transport.
Environmentally friendly travel.
Besides the train, the electric bike is one of the most environmentally friendly options when it comes to motorised travel, and also releases the fewest emissions (see graphic). Compared with cars, e-bikes are much lighter, and use up less space and energy. This also means that the environmental impact of producing their motors, frames and batteries is significantly lower. In addition, charging e-bikes with eco-power limits the grey emissions of electricity production. With SBB Green Class E-Bike, an eco-power road tax disc guarantees that this is the case. The Stromer ST2, which is much more comfortable and can go a lot faster than a conventional bike, is also a valid alternative to commuting by car. In an ideal world, SBB Green Class E-Bike would result in far fewer journeys being made by car or would even lead to people no longer having a first or second car whatsoever.
