The Netherlands is renowned for its high levels of mobility and efficient transportation systems. Infrastructure is everywhere in Holland. In fact, the entire country can be seen as one big infrastructural project.
The Netherlands have a highly developed bike and public transport infrastructure. The bicycle is one of the most popular modes of transportation. The Dutch government has invested heavily in cycling infrastructure, with separate bike lanes on many roads. In Dutch cities, cycling infrastructure forms a continuous system, pervading the entire city fabric and reaching out into the countryside.
Another important form of transport in Holland is the railway. On an average weekday, 1,3 million people commute between cities by train. Accordingly, the system is so dense that it resembles a large-scale metro network. The OV-chipkaart is a smart card that can be used on all forms of public transportation in the Netherlands.
