PlanAmsterdam Cycling policy and design

PlanAmsterdam plaatje voorkant

In Amsterdam, most people travel by bike, and for good reason. In larger towns – with more than 10,000 inhabitants – a cyclist will on average reach his destination 10 percent faster than a car driver, according to statistics from the Nederlandse Fietsersbond (Dutch Cycling Federation). Plus it’s calmer, cheaper, you don’t have any delays or traffic jams to contend with and you get to really take in the city.

Since 1994 the professional magazine PlanAmsterdam has been describing spatial themes and developments in Amsterdam and the metropolitan region. The issues of the magazine are created as a collaboration between several governmental institutions. Each year eight numbers are published.

The last published number describes the policies and designs regarding cycling in Amsterdam, which is the number one transport in the Netherlands. A way to achieve less CO2 emission is by making cities more bicycle friendly. Interested in how Amsterdam aims to achieve this? Download the magazine below.
