Abstract: In the paper, the travel costs of electric bicycles, buses, private cars and bicycles were calculated using travel costs computational models. Through comparative analysis, the position of electric bicycles on urban traffic can be definited reasonably. The research can help government decision-makers to treat electric bicycle reasoningly and promote the rational development of electric bicycle.
