How does a sustainable mobility system for Texel look like, and what is needed to achieve this?

A visit to Texel starts with a ferry ride. The ferry is greened in the last years, and a new, even more sustainable, ferry is ordered. There are many bikes on the island, but also a lot of cars, a bus (public transport) and taxis. Although there are many kilometres of bike lanes, conflicts occur between fast and slow traffic. Both visitors and inhabitants have a need for fast traffic. How can the mobility need of both the visitors and inhabitants be met in terms of a sustainable transport system?

Current initiatives:

- Stichting Urgenda
