Block out the first hour of the day in your calendar beforehand. You’ll be able to start your day undisturbed at home and leave an hour later.
You don’t always have to take the train or drive. Try a shared car, e-bike or scooter – for free or with a significant discount!
A brand new e-bike! Follow the De Week Zonder Spits on social media, and who knows, perhaps you’ll be riding your new bike to work soon!
Our roads and public transport network are extremely busy. Nobody likes being stuck in a traffic jam or crammed into an overcrowded train. Every day, around 1.1 million people in the Amsterdam region travel to and from work. And it’s not exactly a smooth process: the average driver spends 60 hours a year in traffic jams in and around our capital city. The public transport network is bursting at the seams too. Such a difficult start has knock-on effects throughout the day: it affects your ability to concentrate, raises stress levels and reduces job satisfaction.
Fortunately, around 9,000 people are already avoiding rush hour every day. That frees up about 1,000 extra hours and saves €10,000 that would otherwise be lost to traffic jams. Those are great figures, but the most important part of De Week Zonder Spits is you.
A life without rush hour increases your productivity, job satisfaction and happiness. So what are you waiting for? Take part in De Week Zonder Spits and help us to beat rush hour!
