Every move counts! Join in this summer!

During these summer days, we are challenging travellers to ‘get moving’ and to join in with the effort to reduce the kilometres of stationary traffic on the roads by parking outside the city centre, by ensuring your car has the correct tyre pressure, or by travelling by train, bus, or bicycle. After all, if you travel to work using public transport or pedal power, you cut CO2emissions and help keep the city accessible.

We started the campaign on Tuesday 11 June in the Randwyck district, close to six of the employers affiliated with Zuid-Limburg Bereikbaar: VodafoneZiggo, the Province of Limburg, WML, Mercedes-Benz CAC, the Bonnefantenmuseum, and Servatius. We also handed out prize draw codes at the bus stops on Randwycksingel near Mercedes Benz and on Avenue Céramique by the Bonnefantenmuseum to people travelling by bus, cycling, or walking to work.

During the months of June, July, and August, we will be handing out prize draw codes to people travelling sustainably at stations, affiliated workplaces, and other locations in South Limburg.

  • 19 June: at the underground bicycle parking facility in Maastricht and at the affiliated workplaces Rijkswaterstaat and the Public Prosecutor's Office.
  • 20 June: at Arcus College and Zuyd Hogeschool in Heerlen. Cyclists at the Zuyderland hospitals in Heerlen and Sittard will also find a prize draw code on their bikes. 
  • 29 June: at the Markt square in Maastricht during a campaign day run by the youth network JONGR. 
  • 1 July: we will be checking the tyre pressure of the cars of employees of and visitors to L1 in Maastricht and correcting the tyre pressure where necessary, and distributing prize draw codes.

The initial responses:

Jolanda Willems, Province of Limburg:‘It's nice to have the chance to win something just by being a keen cyclist. I cycle to work about 99% of the time. My colleagues think I deserve to win the e-bike.’

Karin Malherbe, Rijkswaterstaat:‘Here you are! Can I have a prize draw code, please? I travel by bike from Elsloo to my work in Maastricht two out of my three working days per week.’

Laura and Maarten, ViaStory:‘It’s a good campaign. Travelling by bike in the city is fast, easy, healthy, and environmentally friendly. A little extra exercise after work is good if you spend most of the day sitting at your computer.’
