BICYCLE DUTCH

All about cycling in the Netherlands

Car free inner city of ’s-Hertogenbosch

The city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch closed the historic inner city for motorized traffic. This used to be different. From the 1960s the city looked like one big parking lot. Now we only see pedestrians and cyclists in the historic center that since long has become a shopping area. You can still park your car near this center, but it is very expensive. This encourages people to come by bicycle. If they can not do that, or if they do not want to, there are “transferia” at the edges of the city near the motorways. Huge parking lots where there was space to build them. From such a ‘transferium’ buses bring people to the center in just minutes and at a fraction of the cost of parking in the center.
