Stefan Gossling and Andy S. Choi, researchers at the Lund University of Copenhagen, which has a significant number of cyclists, investigated a cost-benefit analysis used by the Copenhagen Municipality to determine the cost to society and a person in terms of air pollution, climate change, travel route, noise, road wear, health and congestion in Copenhagen.

The study has concluded that cars have a negative impact on the economy than bicycles. It was found that it cost the society and the person a total of EUR 0.50 per kilometer while the bicycle cost 0.08 per kilometer.

The study also found that it cost society EUR 0.15 for every kilometer by car while society earned EUR 0.16 for every kilometer cycled.

Gossling said that the study shows that investments in cycling infrastructure and bike friendly policies are economically sustainable and ensured high returns.
