Electric bicycle adoption – drivers and barriers from a user perspective
Conference contribution, 2016

Recent technological advances has led electric bicycles to represent novel opportunities to replace car journeys. However, despite the potential for societal gains, there is relatively little research that studies why potential users either choose to ride an electric bicycle, or not. Accordingly, this study investigates drivers and barriers of using an electric bicycle for everyday trips through a case study in western Sweden.
