New Insights into our Daily Transport

With the Netherlands Mobility Panel (MPN), the KiM Netherlands Institute for Transport Policy Analysis investigates how the Dutch people travel and how this changes over the years. Recently, this has produced new insights. Such as about the (perception of) traffic jams and the use of the e-bike. This is the fourth animation in the MPN animation series. Mobility Panel 2020.

Public documents

We disseminate our knowledge by publishing our reports in the public domain. We provide knowledge for the policymaking processes within the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management (knowledge at the table). And we draw attention within the ministry to topics arising from current developments in policy, science, and society.

For all forms of mobility

We do this for all forms of mobility: passenger and freight transport by road, public transport, civil aviation, and transport by water. We also investigate subjects related to mobility, such as sustainability, safety, and the relationship between the public and private sectors.

From multiple perspectives

We address topics from different angles and from different disciplines. Our researchers have a range of academic backgrounds, including traffic engineering, economics, social geography, regional planning, sociology, mathematics, psychology, and public administration. We ensure that the ministry is able to develop policy with a sound knowledge base.
