Sustainable mobility

The Leiden Bio Science Park encourages sustainable forms of transport. Our choices are based on the types of transport that visitors to the park use (or want to use) on a regular basis. The commuter traffic of employees and students at Leiden University was analysed by DTV Consultants in 2017. The distribution key below shows the percentage of students and employees who come to the University by bicycle, car, public transport or other means of transport.

In what ways do we encourage sustainable mobility?

An incubator for innovation


Sustainable mobility is encouraged via the Hartlijn: a green walking and cycling route through the park.

The parking facilities, such as the Ehrenfestweg car park, are mainly situated on the edges of the Leiden Bio Science Park. This means that most cars do not have to drive further into the park. Large central parking facilities reduce the number of parking spaces needed throughout the park.

Charging points

To meet the needs of drivers of electric vehicles, a number of electric charging points have been installed on and around the LBSP. The less fossil fuel we use, the fewer particulates in the air.

Car sharing

Car sharing is part of a sustainable transport system. These could be shared cars provided by such companies as Greenwheels and Myweels. There are also shared bicycles and company bicycles on the park. Visitors who do not have their own bicycle can borrow public transport bicycles at Leiden Central station.

Willem Einthoven building

Electric vehicles are mainly used for the logistics of the Willem Einthoven building.

Multiple bus connections

A number of public transport routes are in place as part of the R-net (bus connections): Leiden Central station and the bus terminal are close together on the Leiden Bio Science Park. There are a number of bus stops in and around the park.
