Commuting is a significant share of people’s use of transport, therefore the employer should play an important part in changing the way people commute to work.

The methodology consists of a survey that was sent out to 260 employees at Uppsala municipality who accepted the offer of electric bicycle as a salary benefit, three interviews were also carried out. The findings show that employees at Uppsala municipality changed their mode of transport from car to electric bicycle to the greatest extent.
