Haarlem is faced with the challenge of remaining accessible and a good place to live despite its increasing growth. The transition – known as the mobility transition – gives priority to clean means of transport that occupy as little space as possible. This involves making less use of cars, so that travel within the city takes place as much on foot or by bicycle as is feasible. The new public transport hub will soon be one of three facilities in the city that enable regional journeys by high-grade public transport and at the same time have connections with the inner city by foot.
