Piet Hein tunnel closed? Get on your bicycle and reward yourself!

Try an E-bike

Why use an electric bike?

  • Get to your destination faster
  • No problems due to the closure of the Piet Heintunnel


How does the app work?

Toogethr Cycles offers you this free app in collaboration with the City of Amsterdam. The idea is simple: if your bike ride can be an alternative for the Piet Hein tunnel, you earn points. And you can exchange those points in the webshop for discount coupons or a donation to a local charity. The more rides you make, the more you earn!

Try out an E-bike

In recent months, many people have tried an e-bike through one of our distribution points. In the coming weeks we will get to work and use your feedback to launch a brand new e-bike trial campaign soon. This will allow even more interested parties to try an e-bike in spring. Will we see you then?

Why cycling?

The Piet Hein tunnel will be closed for 15 months and there is a high chance that car drivers will experience significant traffic disruption. For people who live or work in Amsterdam, the bicycle or E-bike is a good alternative. Cycling around the tunnel will remain possible and is a fast and healthy way to travel from door to door. It is also very convenient to take the bike to a P+R location or train station, park it there and then continue on to your final destination.

To encourage bicycle use – and to minimize traffic disruption around the Piet Hein Tunnel – we have launched a number of great campaigns in collaboration with the City of Amsterdam. We want to get motorists to use their bikes or try out an e-bike and we want to reward everyone who rides a bike, now or in the future!
