This report presents the evaluability assessment (EA) of Sustrans’ Cargo Bike Library (CBL). The CBL is a programme offering small businesses and organisations a no-cost opportunity to borrow an e-cargo bike as part of their logistical operations, and was piloted in Edinburgh, Scotland in 2017 and continued with capital funding provided by Transport Scotland in 2018/19. In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic created an unprecedented opportunity for the CBL to meet a new but rapidly changing demand; one that offered scope for supporting future learning, funding, and wider implementation. Sustrans is committed to embed evaluative thinking to optimise the delivery of the programme and evidence its impact; and would like to integrate flexible evaluation approaches to capture and action learning in a rapidly changing and responsive economic, policy, and legislative context.
