Prognoses

Almere, fastest growing new town in Europe




Much of the planned infrastructure around Almere has never been built: the IJmeer-coonection is important missing link


Connections
Connections been built: the IJmeer-coonection is important missing link

  • Motorways (A6 + A27)

  • Railway A’dam-Lelystad

  • Railway Lelystad-Utrecht

  • N23 (new regional road)

  • Hanzelijn (new railway, 2012)


Mobility: some challenges been built: the IJmeer-coonection is important missing link

  • Growth of population

  • Shortage of employment: 90.000 commuters

  • Economic activity: 25.000 new jobs in the next years to come

  • Capacity infrastructure must be extended

  • A6 motorway and Flevo railway are to be doubled in capacity

  • Connecting Schiphol to Lelystad Airport

  • Lobby for new road en rail connections


  • Public transportation: facts and figures been built: the IJmeer-coonection is important missing link

  • 5.9 million clients (individuals getting on a bus)

  • Together they travel 127 million kilometer a year

  • Cost effiency: 53%

  • Punctionality: 95%

  • Punishment for leaving to early or to late

  • Customer satisfaction: 7,3 (scale of 1-10)

  • Complaints: 1500 (0,1%)

  • Difference in peak and off peak hours


Challenges for public transportation
Challenges for public transportation been built: the IJmeer-coonection is important missing link

Regional “Hubs” for public transport

Congestion in peak hour as a result of infrastructure overload

High use of public transportation (in Almere up tot 40%)

Any location can be reached by car and public transport.

Differentation of rates

Fight against Traffic Jam

New balance between New Towns and the rural area

Public/Private co-operation in public transport


Different solutions on the same network
Different solutions on the same network been built: the IJmeer-coonection is important missing link

  • In rural areas regular bus services is complemented by collective transportation on demand

  • CTD is a system of -on demand- transportation from “door to door”.

  • You share a cab with more people and you have to order a cab at least one hour before you want to leave.

  • Almere: high capacity

  • 5 train stations

  • Unique system of bus lanes

  • Bus stop within 500 meters

  • High frequency busservice (3–7 min.)

  • In peak hours fast service to A’dam area


It’s all about ambition! If this is not what we want been built: the IJmeer-coonection is important missing link


And neither is this . . . been built: the IJmeer-coonection is important missing link


This is probably more like it! been built: the IJmeer-coonection is important missing link


For some of us not even the sky is the limit . . . been built: the IJmeer-coonection is important missing link


  • ‘No one lives or works on a station’ been built: the IJmeer-coonection is important missing link

  • We need door-to-door solutions

  • The answer: smart public transport on demand
