Webinar - Pop-up bike lanes: a game changer in cycling?

The corona pandemic has challenged users of public transportation, but many people still need to move from A to B every day.

As a response, so-called pop-up bike lanes are being implemented rapidly in cities all over the world, from Berlin and Bogota to Brussels and Budapest.

Pop-up bike lanes not only make cycling in cities possible during the current crisis, but also provide an opportunity to demonstrate how streets can quickly be redesigned to accommodate more people moving through the city in a healthy and sustainable way.

On 14 May, 14.00-15.30 CEST, Ramboll Smart Mobility is holding a webinar in which the City of Berlin, the New Zealand Transport Agency and DG Move (European Commission) will share how public authorities at different levels can implement and support pop-up bike lanes.


  • Peter Broytman, Senate Department for the Environment, Transport and Climate Protection; (Coordination for cycle transport)
  • Felix Weisbrich, Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg district, Head of Road and Green department from City of Berlin
