Schiphol Airport and Cycling

Green corridor surrounding Amsterdam
This article by Pascal van den Noort- unfortunately only published in Dutch in Vervoerskunde -promotes sustainable mobility in and around Schiphol Airport by promoting decentralized airplane check-in at Railway Stations. In October 2007 this proposal for a check-in facility has been accepted by Schiphol as a feasible option for the future, and they will study it in depth.

The article also promotes solutions for congestion on the Ring Road around Amsterdam, by developing Ringroad Transferia and 'Clean Transport Highways' to Amsterdam's Center City: Highways for bikes, bike taxis, electric vehicles etc.
The article links relevance of the economy, with the environment and quality of life of Amsterdammers.
