Cargo Bikes Beat Vans for Deliveries


Electric cargo bikes deliver about 60% faster than vans in city centres, according to a study. It found that bikes had a higher average speed and dropped off 10 parcels an hour, compared with six for vans.

Here's the Amazon e-cargo bike delivery that I've seen frequently since spring:

They seem to take up as much space as a car, if not more.
I don't know if they would get stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic; that seems to defeat the purpose of reducing congestion, but at least reduces pollution.
