This was our third top in the Netherlands


We made our third digital stop in the Netherlands on November 11, 2021.

The Dutch edition of the BUS2BUS Digital Roadshow focused on new ideas for bus tourism and long-distance travel.

How can one improve transport between cities and rural areas in order to make living and working outside the cities borders more attractive? What must the relevant mobility concepts look like?
