Philippe Buisson, president of La Cali, announced it this Wednesday before the community council. The urban community is launching aid this Thursday for the purchase of a bike – new or used from a professional, in a shop or on the Internet. “At Christmas, there are two gifts to make, a comic strip or a bicycle,” he added.
A process will be undertaken with Cali professionals who will be able to contract with the community and directly deduct the aid and be reimbursed very quickly afterwards by Cali. “A letter will be sent very quickly to cycle sellers asking them to adopt this third-party payment system,” added Philippe Buisson.
The bicycles concerned are: classic bicycles (excluding sports and leisure and children’s bicycles), electrically assisted bicycles, cargo, recumbent and folding bicycles and bicycles adapted to handicaps (electrical or mechanical) and electrification kit for existing standard bicycles. It should be noted that bicycles of a leisure or sporting nature (mountain bikes, racing bicycles, etc.) are excluded from the scheme because the aid is intended to be a mobility aid.
Adults who can provide proof of their main residence in one of the municipalities of La Cali whose reference tax income per person is less than or equal to 26,000 euros will be able to benefit from the aid. If a family wants to buy two bikes, they will request two different aids.
The Cali does not set a budget limit with for the time being a budget line released up to 100,000 euros but which can be increased according to requests.
The aid allocated by Cali will take the form of a grant. The amount of this grant is capped at 40% of the cost of the purchase up to 500 euros within the following limits :
|Individual whose reference tax income per unit is less than or equal to 6300 euros or person with a disability||Individual whose reference tax income per unit is less than or equal to 13,489 euros||Individual whose reference tax income per unit is greater than 13,489 euros and less than 26,000 euros|
