Recently, the Municipal authority has announced a 20% reduction of electricity and public utilities rates aiming to encourage businesses to use cycling as a transport mode in urban areas. The city has strong ambitions such as reducing noise pollution and contributing to climate protection by promoting cycling as a sustainable option for commuting. The city is committed to these goals all year long and during the European Mobility Week it ran projects to encourage a significant modal shift away from motorized transport. Unsurprisingly, Karditsa was officially certified as a cycling friendly city!
