Beyond Ordinary

In this article the author describes the Haaglanden Mobiel (‘Greater Hague Mobile’) public-private partnership (PPP) travel information system based out of The Netherlands. The organization hopes to increase the availability of multimodal logistics to the Greater Hague region. The country’s Rijkswaterstaat (the Netherlands Directorate General of Public Works and Water Management) and The Hague’s Stadsgewest Haaglanden together contributed $4.7 million as the public contribution to the venture. The service provides website, telephone, and text message information delivery. Dynamic Route Information Panels (DRIPs) and the European Traffic Message Channel (TMC) services are also available for use in vehicular navigation systems, while cellular phones can directly access traffic camera images for better route planning. The venture is also encouraging the use of the new RandstadRail light rail system (LRT) that links The Hague, Zoetermeer, and Rotterdam.
