CIVITAS Case Study - Keeping the city centre accessible in Utrecht

To limit the negative impacts of road works in and around Utrecht and to further stimulate the use of public transport, the City of Utrecht formed a unique public/private entity called ‘Platform Utrecht Bereikbaar’. Under the brand ‘Utrecht Accessible’, partners worked to keep Utrecht accessible during public works. Features included the free ‘Utrecht Accessible Pass’, a public transport pass given to employees offering access to regional public transport, public bicycles for business and private use, some trains and Park & Ride services. What was supposed to be a two to three year project, is now in its fifth year.
