Following the publication of the French Decree 2020-1412, it is now allowed for electric mopeds, motorcycles and quadricycles to make use of lanes that are normally reserved for busses and taxi’s. Before the change, only heavy electric vehicles such as cars and vans were allowed to use the lanes thanks to their low emissions figures. This change is meant to ensure a more equal treatment of heavy and light electric vehicles.
Drivers and riders must use their electric vehicles with a Crit’Air-stickers. The sticker proves that their vehicle has the ‘’zero-emission’’ status which allows them to make use of these lanes.
However, it is up to the communities to decide whether or not they implement this measure.
