Sustainable accessibility of the Netherlands

The travellers of 2020 are different from those of 2025 or 2040. In fact, the boundaries between concepts like 'train passengers', 'cyclists' and 'drivers' are becoming blurred. It's no longer a choice of one or the other: by car or public transport. It's a mixture of both: whatever suits you at a particular time and for a particular destination. Our demands regarding the availability of transport options, facilities at the station and service provision by humans and apps are changing. People are travelling more and travelling differently. Flexibility, convenience and comfort are paramount.
