 Bicycle station Lüneburg
BYPAD Modul: Bicycle infrastructure and safety Lueneburg   (Germany)
An ever increasing number of commuters to Hamburg, insufficient bicycle parking facilities near the railway station (with the result that the station became the place with the highest bicycle theft rate in the city) and the declared intention to promote sustainable modes of transport in the city’s transport development plan of 1990 induced the local authority to build a bicycle station right next to the train station premises.


There were 513 bicycles at an average left at the bicycle station in its first year. By now this has risen to 733 bicycles. Taking into account that there are some 85 places used by the workshop and by some bicycles which have never been picked up again, capacity use of the bicycle station is 85%. Out of those, 31% are commuters who have switched from their car to the bike, 28% use the bike instead of public transport and 19% use their bike instead of walking. 22% are new customers.

In the BYPAD questionnaire for cities this example fits to module 5 question 16
