Bicycle Policy ’s-Hertogenbosch (Netherlands)

The city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch articulated a new “cycle ambition” in 2009. The bicycle policy for the city is a long term plan to update cycle infrastructure (for both riding and parking) and for promoting cycling. Building for the new plan is already taking place. The city wants to become a real cycle city. The modal share of 33% in 2009 was far more than what other cities in the world have (Copenhagen barely reaches 25%) but it is just average in the Netherlands. ‘s-Hertogenbosch has the ambition to call itself a cycle city but wants to do so only when the modal share of cycling of all journeys in the city reaches 44%.

The full plan (in Dutch) can be downloaded as pdf.

The first results and some background information of the new bicycle policy are shown in this video.
