From 1 January, new fees for parking apply in Maastricht. If you plan to travel by car to visit Maastricht's city centre, make sure to use our travel and parking tips. In this way, you can choose the parking space that best suits the nature of your visit, whether you plan on a long or a short stay, want to park close to your destination or far away from it, or have a big or small budget in mind.
Maastricht Bereikbaar is working hard on setting future-proof travel in motion. To secure the economic vitality of South Limburg, we continue to focus on accessibility and flow of traffic as the pressure on the road network continues to leave it vulnerable. And, more than ever before, we are doing this in a sustainable and future-proof way to make a concrete contribution to climate policy, a liveable environment, and personal health and well-being. We continue to try and change behaviour by encouraging people to use their car less and use their bicycles, public transport, and P+Rs more. From now on, we are also going to focus on more effective and more environmentally-friendly car use. Another new aspect in this programme is that we are going to work on a more area-based approach for city centres and economic core areas. Since our start in 2010, we have been working successfully together with employers, interest groups, knowledge institutes, providers of mobility services, and government authorities.
The end of the year is in sight. We're all looking forward to Sinterklaas (Saint Nicholas Day), Christmas, and – of course – Magical Maastricht. Just like in other months, we'll be doing our best to make sure you can travel easily to, from, and within the city and region at this busy time. That's why this year we are offering several promotions that will allow you discounted travel to the centre. This way, we’ll reduce congestion levels for everyone.
Cycling in the winter is not only enjoyable and healthy – it’s good for the environment too! Every time you cycle instead of driving, you contribute to a healthier environment because of the car emissions you save. Participate in the winter campaign and show us how you can withstand whatever the weather throws at you! By doing so, you can inspire others and stand a chance of winning great prizes.
In het nieuwe programma voor 2019 gaat Maastricht Bereikbaar ook aan de slag met toekomstgericht autorijden. Zoals het stimuleren van het rijden met elektrische auto’s via de actie van Lease naar E-lease. Als jouw werkgever is aangesloten bij Maastricht Bereikbaar, kun je aan deze actie meedoen. In het najaar van 2018 is Maastricht Bereikbaar al van start gegaan met de actie Band op Spanning.
