goodmorning technology: CarGo copenhagen city council

CarGo by goodmorning technology

the number of cargo bikes in copenhagen has increased dramatically over the past years. today 6% of all copenhagen households own at least one cargo bike – this adds up to more than 15 000 cargo bikes in the danish capital.

CarGo by goodmorning technology‘the many copenhageners who invest in a cargo bike help make copenhagena more sustainable and liveable metropolis. we must, of course, take the cargo bikes into consideration when planning and we do that by offering them some proper parking spots’. copenhagen mayor, klaus bondam said.

the shell is made of fiberglass and is comprised of four separate cabins, each with room for one bike. this means that four bicycles can park in the space normally taken up by one car.

the ‘car’ has four solar powered ‘headlights’ that turn on after dark.in addition, a solar powered light turns on inside when one of the doors are opened. hooks and a net are mounted on the walls of each cabin, for hanging up wet weather clothing and gear.

  • waste of space in this crowded town – happy, overdesigned Danes.

    jdc says:
  • nice and cut idea~~ but only for four bicycles…a little bit waste of space…if one car for 8~10 bicycles, that will be perfect…
