To relieve its public transport and roads – and prepare for a post-Covid-19 world – the autonomous community of Madrid is offering to cover half the cost of a scooter, bicycle, moped or electric motorcycle for its inhabitants. Bicycles may cost up to €500, mopeds up to €600 and motorcycles up to €750. The local government is setting aside €2.5 million for the subsidy and will be adding another €3 million in 2021. The announcement was made on June 4 by Paloma Martín, Madrid’s councilwoman for the environment, territorial planning and sustainability.
