Employees at Schiphol-East can make free use of new shared bicycles.

The new shared bicycles are perfect for getting to a meeting in another building quickly, getting a sandwich during lunch or continuing your journey from the bus stop.

That will contribute to our goal of making transport to, from and at the airport more sustainable.
