Pop-Up Bike Lanes

A pop-up bike lane is a temporarily implemented bike lane designed to provide more space and safety for bicyclists in city traffic. These bike lanes are a stepping stone in the transformation of urban transportation as many tend to be implemented permanently.
Pop-up bike lanes became widespread in many major cities, including Berlin, during the Covid-19 pandemic, encouraging more people to switch to bicycles and reducing the risk of infections on public transportation.
