Over distances of up to 5 km bikes or scooters mostly match cars. A bus, tram, or subway will take about twice as long over the same distance. This is according to data from the CBS (The Central Bureau of Statistics)


  • People using a bike to travel distances of up to 7,5 km, arrive on average faster than people travelling by a bus, tram, or subway as the main mode of transport. Distances up to 5 km travelled by car take on average 9 minutes, while travellers taking the bus, tram, or subway spend 23 minutes traversing this short distance. These travel times are for the total door to door distance. In cases where the main leg of the journey is made using public transport, waiting times at bus stops or stations as well as the times taken to reach them were included in the total traveling time. For car trips, traffic jam delays and similar inconveniences were also taken into account.
