The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism has decided to consider support measures to promote the development of bicycle parking lots by companies in order to popularize bicycle commuting.
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism has put together a draft plan up to 2025 to encourage the use of bicycles to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, revitalize the region through tourism, and improve the health of workers.
The draft plan sets a goal of increasing the proportion of bicycles as the main means of commuting from 15.2% in 2015 to 18.2% in 2025.
To achieve this, we will consider budget and tax support measures such as subsidies for companies that develop bicycle parking lots.
In addition, the plan includes the promotion of the designation of "national cycle routes" equipped with bicycle routes and rest facilities in order to popularize "cycle tourism" for enjoying sightseeing by bicycle and promote the region. I'm out.
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism will formally compile a draft plan later this month and promote efforts to promote the use of bicycles.
