As of now exhibition centre employees can lease work bicycles cheaply
Messe Friedrichshafen employees have cycling in their blood – not least because of the annual EUROBIKE show. Yellow service bikes are already being used at the Messe grounds to shorten the sometimes quite substantial distances between the exhibition halls, and employees also have the use of e-bikes for official travel in the local area. Those who have to commute to work at Messe Friedrichshafen can also opt for an e-bike in lieu of a bonus, so that they avoid traffic and keep fit at the same time.
Employees can lease the bicycle of their choice and the monthly fee that is deducted from their gross salary earns them real tax benefits. The scheme has met with great interest and at latest by next spring, lots of employees will be zipping past the peak time traffic jams on their bikes.
