September 16, 2020 – The company “Split parking” has been approved a maximum of 75 thousand kuna without VAT for the purchase of electric bicycles after applying to the Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund’s public call co-finance the purchase of energy-efficient vehicles.

Slobodna Dalmacija reports that the maximum subsidy of the state institution is 5,000 kuna per vehicle on two wheels, which means that the Fund will subsidize a total of 15 of the 120 already ordered electric bicycles that should arrive on the streets of Split at the end of October. Since the vehicles that can be rented in our city are more expensive than the mentioned amount of support, the rest of the value will be paid by the utility company.

“Funds are intended to increase energy efficiency in transport, and the project achieves energy savings and reduces emissions of greenhouse gases and other harmful substances,” says Split parking.

This, they say, is in line with Split Parking’s plans to promote alternative forms of transport in Split, which from month to month, holds the position of a record holder in Croatia in the use of public bicycles, so new bicycles will certainly provoke positive reactions from residents.

“When we saw the tender, we immediately decided to prepare all the necessary documentation and apply and use the opportunity for subsidies. We have been up to date enough, and the funds are there now. According to the contract, we are obliged to spend the funds within a year, but since the bikes have already been ordered because we planned to increase the number of bikes in the public bike system, it will happen much earlier,” said Split parking.

In addition to the purchase of new electric bicycles, Split parking will also purchase 50 classic bikes. All of them will find their place at the new stations set up in the city’s busiest locations. Preparatory works should start at the end of September, and about 35 new stations are planned.
