Smart travel tips for students

Maastricht Bereikbaar was one of the organizations to welcome new students to Maastricht last week during INKOM 2018. During the event, we gave students travel tips for travelling to and from their classes and encouraged them to travel more by bicycle, public transport, and other means. That way, students can help to keep Maastricht accessible and also save money by travelling smart.

The INKOM event is held annually during the first week of the new academic year (this year's edition was from Monday 20 August to Friday 24 August). This welcome week introduces some 3,000 students to the city of Maastricht.

Smart travel tips for students

During the information market on Monday 20 August, Maastricht Bereikbaar highlighted the various options for smart travel to and from classes and through the city. We also informed students about the options of buying or renting a bicycle and where to store their bicycles. For students who do travel by car, we recommend parking on the outskirts of the city at one of the two P+R car parks. From there, you can then travel to classes or the city centre by bus or share bike.

Say cheese!

During the information fair, students could take individual or group photographs at Maastricht Bereikbaar's stand, as a reminder of the INKOM event. And we made sure the setting was perfect: behind a picture of Vrijthof square printed on a large photo wall. As a gimmick, they could show how they travel through the city by taking pictures with one of the many props, such as a bicycle tyre or a bus stop sign. Students at INKOM could also grab a pair of bicycle lights to help them get home safely. 

Win some fun travel gadgets

To make travelling a little more fun, students stand the chance of winning fun travel gadgets like a smartwatch or a power bank after if they fill in the survey. Maastricht Bereikbaar wants to use this survey to gain more insight into students’ travel behaviour and needs.
