The Trampe Bicycle lift

Trondheim is the first city in the world with a lift specifically designed for cyclists. The bicycle lift, developed in Trondheim, goes up the steep hill at Brubakken near Gamle Bybro, and it takes you from the bridge and almost all the way up to the Kristiansten Fort.

For test-runs, you need a lift card and a bike. The lift card is available at the Tourist Information Office at the market square, or Sykkelbua, The MIX kiosk and Dromedar Kaffebar at the starting point of the lift.

Hilly cities normally have a low share of cycling. How come that Trondheim, the third largest city of Norway, has the highest share of cycling compared to all the other Norwegian cities? We believe there are three main reasons:

  • Trondheim is a university city with 30 000 students, 90 % of whom using their bicycles as their main transport tool
  • During the last 20 years, there has been invested more than 20 mill NOK in a bicycle roads network and bicycle transport infrastructure in Trondheim
  • One of the most important infrastructure elements is the bicycle lift Trampe. During 15 years of operation, it has pushed more than 220 000 cyclist up the very steep hill Brubakken in the historical heritage part of the city center

There is no doubt that Trampe has inspired students as well as other people living in Trondheim to take to their bicycles. In a user survey, 41 % of the lift users claim they are using the bicycle more often due to the installation of Trampe.
