Cairgo Bike is the result of an extraordinary cooperation between various Brussels-based partners in the private and public sectors, associations and academia. Each partner contributes its own expertise.
A project coordinated by :
Brussels Mobility is the government department of the Brussels Capital Region that is responsible for facilities, infrastructure and transport. The most important challenge is to combine economic development – and the increasing need for mobility – with a better quality of life and sustainable development. Brussels Mobility provides the coordination and communication required for Cairgo Bike, linked to the campaign Bike for Brussels. The intention is to increase the prominence of the project and all the existing initiatives in the Brussels Region.
In partnership with :
BePark was founded in 2011 and brings owners who want to optimise their car park management into contact with users in search of a parking space, given the increasing difficulty of finding street parking! BePark offers secure cargo bike parking on public roads and elsewhere.
Brussels Economy and Employment is the government department of the Brussels Capital Region that is responsible for the development of sustainable economy and employment in the Brussels Capital Region. The services it provides are mainly focused on businesses and employers. Brussels Economy and Employment provides grants to encourage professionals to use cargo bikes.
Brussels Environment is the government department of the Brussels Capital Region that is responsible for environmental affairs. Its tasks include measuring air quality and designing sustainable mobility policies, including the low emission zone, the gradual phasing out of combustion engines, company transport plans and making the government fleet more environmentally friendly. Brussels Environment is also responsible for the network of air quality meters and the inventories of emissions of substances that pollute the air, on which it reports to the European Commission each year.

The mobility, logistics and automotive technology research centre is based at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). The Mobilise researchers study the motivations for mobility choices in individuals and various groups in society by examining travel behaviour. The multidisciplinary team of more than 90 specialists tackle the challenges facing the transport value chain from a technical, economic, social, ecological and political perspective. VUB Mobilise is conducting a socio-economic study of the Cairgo Bike project.
This project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the « Urban Innovative Actions » initiative.
