Municipal Police receive electric bikes to ease travel around Monaco

Monaco’s Municipal Police have received two new electric bikes from the Mairie in an initiative that will not only help officers navigate the notoriously small streets of the Principality, but also reduce C02 emissions.

The electric bikes were purchased under the leadership of Municipal Councillor Jean-Luc Puyo, Delegate to the Municipal Police.

“Thanks to these vehicles, Municipal Police teams strengthen their local missions and can intervene in areas that are difficult to access by motorised vehicles but also more quickly, without polluting and avoiding increasingly dense traffic,” said the Mairie in a statement. Municipal Police officers patrol the entire Principality and are responsible for reporting offenses related to parking, among other things.

This flagship project to acquire electric bikes was widely discussed in the lead-up to the municipal election, and was implemented just six months after the project’s inauguration in April 2023.

“The acquisition once again confirms the environmental commitment and the wish of the Municipal Institution to promote clean vehicles and gentler, environmentally friendly mobility,” concluded the Mairie.
