With the NRVP 3.0, Germany wants to go one step further and provide additional active impulses for more bicycle traffic. It takes up the new transport policy challenges and takes particular consideration of the increasing diversity in cycle traffic. The primary goal is to make cycling more attractive and safer and to strengthen the use of public transport, walking and cycling. Version 3.0 is the result of an intensive participation process involving citizens as well as experts from science, business, associations, administration and civil society. An online survey of citizens in early summer 2019 was followed by eleven dialogue forums. Here, various experts and the NRVP project team discussed the most important topics relating to the bicycle along the eight key objectives of the NRVP.
The project team is currently working on the formulation of NRVP 3.0 in close coordination with the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, based on the content developed with the dialogue forum. They were documented in so-called result papers and can be downloaded here (in German). Finally, the national cycling strategy goes through various participation and coordination rounds in the federal ministries before it is adopted by the cabinet and finally published.
