How much has the use of public transport declined?

During the coronavirus crisis, the number of public transport check-ins decreased by up to 90 percent per day relative to one year previously. On 7 July, the first Tuesday on which people were allowed to travel by public transport again, the number of check-ins was approximately half the number on a similar Tuesday in 2019.

How is goods transport developing?

In May, June and July 2020, there were predominantly fewer transport movements in inland waterway, rail, road and maritime transport than one year previously. More information on a weekly basis can now be found on the new dashboard 'Snelle indicatoren Goederenvervoer’ (rapid indicators for goods transport). It shows the number of movements for inland shipping, aviation, rail, road and maritime transport. Where possible, information on weight transported (tonnages or container units) and tonne-kilometres can also be found here. This information will be supplemented over time. This dashboard was created in collaboration with the Netherlands Institute for Transport Policy Analysis (KiM), Panteia, Rijkswaterstaat, ProRail, the National Data Warehouse for Traffic Information (NDW), Schiphol, Royal Dirkzwager and the port companies of Amsterdam, Groningen, Moerdijk, Rotterdam and Zeeland.
