First mobility hubs in the Netherlands launched in De Kop

The first mobi points in the Netherlands have been launched in the Kop van Noord-Holland. Aldermen Theo Meskers (Hollands Kroon), Heleen Keur (Den Helder) and Hans Heddes (Schagen) have put the points into use for the first time. You can see a video of this alternative opening below.

Various modes of transport are offered at a mobi point. Public transport is often close by and there are shared bicycles and cars. The mobi points were set up by the regional partnership De Kop Werken! and are intended to increase the accessibility and liveability of towns and villages in the region. In addition, the shared cars of a mobi point are a sustainable alternative to having your own car. The use of the shared bicycles and shared cars is also simple: you can book online via www.mobipunt.net or via the app and then you drive away.

Participating parties
Many parties from the Kop are involved in the development of the mobi points, including the municipalities of Hollands Kroon, Schagen and Den Helder, the province of North Holland, residents' associations, Pro companies, Advier, Avia Marees, Connexxion, Microsoft and Google. For example, the municipalities supply shared cars and Pro companies take care of the cleaning work, so that the cars remain tidy. The first mobi points have been opened at the bus station in Den Oever and further in Middenmeer, Wieringerwerf and 't Veld. In Den Helder, the first points are at the station, De Schooten and Willemsoord, and the station is the first location in the municipality of Schagen. It will grow in the near future
number of mobi points in the Kop van Noord-Holland. The ambition is to have fourteen mobi points under development by the end of 2020 and forty in 2021.

Interested in a mobile point?
People who are interested in a mobi point in their area can contact us via www.mobipunt.net to explore the possibilities. This allows the network to grow in places where there is also a demand for shared cars and bicycles. In this way we are working on better accessibility of the Kop.

The head works!
This project falls under 'De Kop Werken!', the regional incentive program of the four Kop municipalities of Texel, Den Helder, Hollands Kroon and Schagen and the province of North Holland. We work together on a future-proof region. We do this by continuously exploiting opportunities that strengthen the strength of the region. This concerns the development of ports, agribusiness, energy sector, tourism, accessibility and living environment.
