This tour (by bus) will take you to provincial and urban roads just south of Amsterdam. From the A9-A4 highway, you will enter some interesting provincial roads, including a biobased road section, a solar road and turbo roundabouts. After visiting these locations, we travel to the city of Amstelveen. Here, we will see several old and new neighborhoods with typical residential areas and urban street designs including light-rail, urban roundabouts, bicycle lanes and streets.
