Laurens Drogendijk is directeur van de landelijke stichting Band op Spanning. Zijn hart ligt bij het oplossen van natuur- en milieuproblemen. Niet alleen praten, maar vooral aanpakken is zijn motto. Zo bedacht hij de slimme bandenpomp en vooral de (software) techniek erachter. Zijn de banden op de juiste spanning, gaan ze langer mee, rijd je veiliger en draag je bij aan een beter milieu. Maastricht Bereikbaar heeft de stichting uitgenodigd om ook in de stad Maastricht te zorgen voor de juiste ‘spanning’.

The Province of Limburg has had its own Arriva Nextbike station with ten shared bikes since April 2018. Patrick Souren, service desk coordinator for the Province of Limburg, told us that this was a conscious choice. ‘We were looking for an alternative to continue to meet the demand for shared bikes. Many of our employees were using our own bikes, so we opted for an Arriva Nextbike station next to our own premises.’
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.
