Employees of Heilbronn's municipal administration can switch to bicycle, pedelec or e-bike
JobRad is based on the following model: The employee chooses a bike, pedelec or e-bike from one of the bicycle retailers, participating in the program. For three years, a leasing rate is charged from his or her monthly salary, what implies a reduction of taxable income. At the end of the leasing term, the jobholder gets the opportunity to own the bike by paying the residual value.
The Heilbronn municipal administration and JobRad have signed a frame contract for consolidating the model. Thus, Heilbronn is the first of Baden-Württemberg's major cities, which implements such a scheme.
