Sustainable accessibility

The number of students at TU Delft is growing, the campus is becoming more crowded and economic activity there is increasing. It is therefore becoming increasingly busy on the (access)roads to and from the campus, more parking spaces are required and CO2 emissions are on the rise. All this heightens the burden on the living environment. TU Delft wants to make its campus sustainably accessible. This means more cycling, walking and public transport. This will make the campus cleaner and offers opportunities to make public spaces more appealing creating a campus that is pleasant to study, work, live and do business at.
