Formentera subsidises purchases of new standard and electric bicycles

The Formentera Office of Mobility is pleased to announce that requests for assistance to defray the expense of standard and electric bicycles (€100 and €300 respectively) will be accepted from tomorrow. Between 3 December 2021 and 3 January 2022, Formentera residents over 18 can submit applications to the Citizen Information Office (Oficina d'Atenció al Ciutadà, OAC) or the Virtual Citizen Information Office (OVAC).

Included in Formentera's Sustainable Mobility Plan, the initiative aims "to encourage islanders who typically travel exclusively by car to buy a bicycle and start completing a portion of their journeys on two wheels", explained Rafael González, Councillor of Mobility. "We hope little steps like these will enable us to make Formentera a more sustainable island and one with a cleaner brand of mobility", said the councillor, "where we can reduce CO2 emissions and noise pollution while promoting healthier lifestyles".

Terms and conditions

The Consell de Formentera has unlocked an initial tranche of €15,000 to subsidise bicycle purchases. Assistance will be awarded on a competitive basis, with the only factor being order of submission.

The offer applies to new manual and electric city, hiking and mountain bikes purchased in Formentera establishments. The cost must remain under €1,000 for conventional bikes and under €3,000 for e-bikes, VAT excluded.

Interested parties must submit the associated forms and an estimate specifying the brand, model and the technical terms available on the Consell de Formentera website.
