What is a „commons cargobike“?
- is provided to society based on voluntary donations.
- is a „common good“: to be shared with the community instead of individually owned.
- is advocating for a change in urban transportation, and stands for sustainable mobility.
- promotes neighborhood cooperation: Cafés, private citizens and social facilities are involved and act as pickup locations.
What´s the "Forum Freie Lastenräder" (Union of commons cargobike initiatives)
Forum Freie Lastenräder („Union of Commons Cargobike initiatives“) is the alliance of more than 70 local cargo bikesharing initiatives in Germany, Austria and Hungary. With more than 130 bikes and more than 10,000 registered users, the „FFL“ is an important part of the bottom-up-mobility transition. We provide a yearly conference, an online knowledge base as well as a custom-built, open-source booking software.
Our open-source Wordpress booking plugin "Commons Booking" is available at the Wordpress Plugin directory. We are currently working on a major new version (Commons Booking 2.0 development), as well as an API to connect CB installations.
