Create a federal income tax deduction for bicycle mileage

This petition had 1,668 supporters


The U.S. federal tax code permits taxpayers to take a deduction for each mile driven in a car for work related purposes (described here).

Let's provide the same deduction (at a lower rate) for people who ride bicycles for work related purposes. 

Creating this bicycle mileage tax deduction would promote bicycle commuting, which would mean:

  • fewer cars on the road;
  • less traffic;
  • less pollution; and
  • healthier workers.

Makes sense to me.
