Under Development

CDM AMS-III.BM (external) quantifies GHG emission reduction to project activities that shift the mode of transport of urban passengers to mechanical bicycles, tricycles, e-bikes or e-tricycles, by implementing related infrastructure in an urban area such as bicycle lanes, bicycle sharing programs (through dockless bicycles or sharing stations) and bicycle parking areas.

The proposed revision expands the scope of AMS-III.BM (external) to include the use of e-motorcycles that displace fossil-fueled vehicles for food, groceries, and small cargo delivery. The proposed methodology is globally applicable.

Summary of Development:

The methodology idea note was submitted by ZCO2 (opens on external site). It is currently at “Step 3: Draft Methodology Development” of the VCS Methodology Development and Review Process, 4.3 (PDF) and will follow the process for minor revisions as per Section 4.2 of the VCS Methodology Development and Review Process, v4.3 (PDF).
