A study conducted by Breda University of Applied Sciences (BUas) shows 11.7 million Dutch people live within 15 minutes cycling distance of the train station. The study was conducted to gain insight into the bicycle accessibility of all municipalities in the Netherlands. This is particularly important now, because the Netherlands is facing a major housing challenge in the coming years. If bicycle accessibility is not considered in housing planning, we will fall behind the sustainability ambition in the field of mobility. The results of the study are presented by BUas in the Atlas Bereikbare Stad, a so-called Digital Twin of the Netherlands.
