Amsterdam Beach Express
The Amsterdam Beach Express is a proposal for an e-bike highway connecting the Amsterdam city centre with the beaches of Zandvoort and Bloemendaal aan Zee. E-bikes radically improve the accessibility and connectivity of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area by bike, propelling Amsterdam into a bright and healthy future where electric mobility will become the new standard.
De Amsterdam Beach Express makes the beach accessible by bike for 'Amsterdammers' but also is a route which connects significant historical and cultural spots, allowing tourists to easily access and experience the beautiful Dutch countryside.
For people living in Haarlem and working in Amsterdam Sloterdijk or the city centre the e-bike will become a serious alternative for car or public transport. The transformation of Sloterdijk and the adjoining Haarlemmerstraat offer the opportunity to give the e-bike a leading role in the design of the public space.
