Park & Ride Ypenburg is officially open
Those interested in getting to The Hague quickly and cheaply can now make use of a new P+R ("Park & Ride") facility at the Ypenburg train station, which officially opened at the end of August 2012.
The new car parking lot has 225 spots, 75 of which have been ready since the end of June. Over the coming period the municipality will also place bicycle stands for 320 bikes, 40 covered bicycle storage containers and 8 spaces for mopeds.
A P+R facility provides a good link between the car and public transportation, allowing commuters and travellers to drive their car or ride their bike to the station and then continue their journey on public transportation.
The P+R at the Ypenburg train station is primarily meant to enable travel between the Ypenburg train station and The Hague’s Central Station or Zoetermeer and Utrecht.
The Hague also has another P+R facility with a direct connection to the Binnenstad Express (Tram 15) and the Beach Express (Tram 5), the P+R Hoornwijck.
