Arriva and nextbike
Monday 3 April 2017 marked the offi cial launch of Nextbike, the bicycle-sharing scheme introduced by Arriva in Maastricht. As of now, everyone can use the bicycles, which are available at seven locations throughout the city. The goal is to make 250 bicycles available at 25 locations throughout Maastricht over the next two years. Arriva Nextbike has a network of stations throughout Maastricht that offer shared bicycles for short trips and commutes. The bicycle-sharing scheme is available to everyone and both reinforces and complements Maastricht’s public transport system. Arriva entered into a partnership with Nextbike, a leading bicycle-sharing system that makes 40,000 bicycles available in 24 countries.
Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment
Around 2010 accessibility issues were becoming increasingly urgent. This is why the Dutch government committed to major investments in new roads; approximately 88
billion until 2028. However, especially around cities, limited space is available for new infrastructure. New ways were needed for optimising the use of existing roads. The
government realised this is not something it could do by itself. The Optimising Use programme of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment is organised as an
innovative collaboration. The programme has clear objectives and ambitions. It brings together regional and national governments and businesses, which work together to
achieve better accessibility in twelve regions. We welcome you to come to our Café and talk to us about how we executed the Optimising Use programme.

Provincie Limburg (Province of Limburg)
Limitless potential in the Limburg Euregion: leading the way to a smarter tomorrow
Together with local and regional government authorities, companies and residents, we are investing in a future-proof, affordable, cleaner and smarter mobility system - for our residents, for our travellers and for our visitors.
In this way, we can combine different means of transport to create an accessible city, improving the digital infrastructure and creating fast bike routes as a healthy and eco-friendly alternative. And the highly developed logistics sector can enjoy an additional boost along the way, with extra rail and water connections.
Aptly appropriate for our Euregion: cross-community and cross-border.
