In the course of their collective bargaining negotiations, employers' associations and trade unions have agreed that in future employees of local authorities will also be able to obtain company bicycles and company pedelecs by way of salary conversion. The new arrangement affects around 1.5 million employees.

Baden-Württemberg makes bike leasing possible for civil servants and judges as well. In order to extend the scheme to civil servants and judges, corresponding changes in salary legislation are necessary at the state level. The model for this is the state of Baden-Württemberg, where a corresponding regulatory change came into force on October 20, 2020.
