Bicycle-Friendly Cities: Lessons from Utrecht
Wednesday, May 30, 2018 - 5:30pm to Wednesday, May 30, 2018 - 7:00pm

The Institute for Sustainable Solutions is co-sponsoring this event with The Street Trust. This lecture will be given by Martijn Rietbergen, ISS International Visiting Scholar, researchers, and project leader at the Center of Expertise for Smart Sustainable Cities (University of Applied Science - Utrecht) in the Netherlands. 

Utrecht is a bustling, bicycle-friendly city in the Netherlands. Every day, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., over 125,000 cyclists ride to their work, school, university, public transport, shops or home through the city centre. The municipality wants to make cycling even more attractive for these and other cyclists. Consequently, the bicycle is given precedence in the mobility policy of the municipality of Utrecht. We want to be the most bike-friendly city in the world. We want to keep our growing city livable, accessible and economically strong, and we are convinced that the bicycle can and should play a major role in this. This presentation will give insight into biking policy, bicycle parking and enforcement, bicycle infrastructure and routes, construction and detours, economics, and safety in Utrecht.
