  2. is a „common good“: to be shared with the community instead of individually owned.
  3. is advocating for a change in urban transportation, and stands for sustainable mobility.
  4. promotes neighborhood cooperation: Cafés, private citizens and social facilities are involved and act as pickup locations.
