The Netherlands is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. It has an integrated infrastructure system consisting of roads, railways, waterways, ports and airports. Safety is always a high priority, as well as sustainability of our infrastructure, transportation, and mobility. The Netherlands is proud of its infrastructure, which is among the best in the world.

Smart Mobility

The Netherlands is working hard on the future of transportation and mobility. Cars are increasingly equipped with automatic features, such as automatic parking, adaptive cruise control, and stop-and-go control systems. These developments will continue and will run simultaneously with increasing data-communication between cars on the road and installations at the road side. The Netherlands aims to take the lead in these developments.

The Amsterdam Practical Trial, a series of major pilot tests that use the latest innovations, both in cars and on the road, is a great example of how the Netherlands is working toward smart mobility.

Green Mobility

The future of mobility is green! In order to reach our climate goals and reduce our dependency on fossil fuels, the Netherlands invests heavily in electric vehicles. The ambition of the Netherlands is for all new cars to be emission free by 2030 at the latest.

Some examples of green mobility in the Netherlands include electric-car charging-stations, and alternative fuels and batteries.

Urban Mobility

The bicycle is as Dutch as cheese and tulips. With more bikes than people, the Netherlands takes full advantage of this low cost and green method of transportation. Almost 50 percent of trips shorter than five miles are done by bicycle and with e-bikes on the rise the length of trips is extending to almost 12 miles.

The Dutch are experts of how to safely integrate bikes in city infrastructure and are proud of their modern bicycle transportation networks. In addition to infrastructure, safe, secure, and ample facilities are needed to promote cycling.

Some examples include bicycle facilities and public transit and integrated mobility.
