Norway learns how to encourage cycling

11 October 2019

The Dutch Cycling Embassy’s director Lucas Harms has the attention of a Norwegian delegation.

Norway aims towards a zero growth in the use of private cars in city areas. That is why the Norwegian Ministry of Transport wanted to learn about the Dutch policy to encourage cycling, walking and use public transport, road pricing, transport planning and measures to lower emissions.

Friday the 11th of October a delegation, consisting of 35 people of the Norwegian Ministry of Transport, visited The Hague for a study visit. Our participant, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, organised the day. The Dutch Cycling Embassy introduced itself and explained how the Netherlands encourage cycling. Afterwards, the Dutch Ministry talked about road charging issues as pricing and the political situation around it. The Municipality of The Hague presented their policy to reduce cars and promote public transport in the city and shared their view about e-scooter en car sharing. The Dutch Ministry closed the program with answering a lot of questions about transport planning and lowering emissions.
