THE CHALLENGE

The main challenge is to change people’s mindsets and habits by guiding them to alternative, more sustainable means of transport. The objective is to reduce traffic flows and improve the quality of life for the inhabitants.  There are three major areas to explore:

  • Real-time traffic density information
  • Alternative means of transportation
  • Guidance of traffic flow

For the municipality of Krimpen a/d IJssel, the main focus is on creating an efficient traffic flow while at the same time stimulating people to use sustainable and healthy means of transport. 

The Municipality of Wassenaar would like to reduce the amount of traffic by creating awareness among drivers and offering technological solutions that help people make more sustainable and healthier choices. Reducing the maximum speed limit to 30km/h is one of the currently researched options.

Does your company have an innovative solution to give the municipalities tools to manage the traffic flow, provide real-time traffic density information or guide people to alternative means of transport? Then sign up now and get the chance to win a paid pilot with the municipality of Krimpen a/d IJssel or Wassenaar.
