THE ADP group (Paris Airports) launches “ Paris-Orly By Cycle 2030 “, in order to develop theuse of the bicycle for the employees and residents.
Some 4,500 employees of the platform (around 20%) are domiciled within a radius of less than 10 kilometers, providing plenty of potential for developing the use of bicycles, estimates the manager of Paris airports. This cycling plan, intended for employees of the platform and residents of neighboring towns, was coordinated with the territories and provides for:
-From 2024 and until 2030, the densification of the intra-platform cycle network and a better connection from the airport to the areas surrounding it, with nearly 6 kilometers of new continuous and secure cycle paths (compared to 1 km today today).
This new network allows:
-Service to the airport’s main activity centers: Paris-Orly 1234, the Orlytech real estate center, the Coeur d’Orly business district;
-Direct connections with the towns of Orly, Thiais, Wissous, Morangis, Paray-Vieille-Poste and Rungis;
-Access for local residents to the future multimodal center of the airport giving direct access to lines 14 and 18, and to the bus station, in order to promote intermodality.
Secure bicycle parking as well as showers for employees:
-155 hoops and 70 places in Véligo locker directly near the station;
-More than 500 hoops at the foot of the main airport buildings as well as the development of four secure bicycle parking lots with access controls for employees;
-In addition, from mid-2024, around fifty self-service electric bikes will also be offered to airport employees.
