"As an employee working at the business district Zuidas, the City of Amsterdam gave me the opportunity to join the ‘Mobility as a Service Challenge’. They challenged me to leave my car at home for a month and use public transportation, taxi’s and rental cars only. The challenge has turned into a competition amongst my colleagues which is really nice, everybody wants to save as much time and money as possible!"
"Last week I had a meeting in the center of Amsterdam. When I arrived at train station Zuid, Google showed me that there were massive traffic jams in the city center (like always) so Uber was not an option. The tram wouldn’t stop anywhere near my destination so I decided to rent a bike (OV fiets). Within 10 minutes I reached my destination. If I had gone there by car it would have taken me a lot longer to get there and it would have been more expensive as well!"
"I joined the project to challenge myself. I am so used to driving my car to work, but I do really believe in public transportation. Besides that, I think sustainability is very important and I would like to contribute to that."
"It’s not easy to not use your car. Public transportation can take more time and you have to plan ahead. But we have to do something about sustainability and congestion. It would be great if more people get a chance to join a challenge like this."
