New Metropoolpas for The Hague and Rotterdam
Published: 21 February 2012 Modified: 02 April 2012
The Hague’s Ooievaarspas and the Rotterdampas are joining forces with each other. The goal of the joint project is to create one Metropoolpas so that residents of each city can participate in cultural and recreational activities in both The Hague and Rotterdam.
Development of metropolitan region
The Hague, Rotterdam and surrounding municipalities are working more closely together to combine forces in the so-called Metropoolregio. This joint cooperation should reinforce the region’s competitive position and lead to better accessibility for the region’s roads and public transportation. The cities will also work more closely together in terms of facilities.
On 14 February the first steps were taken to expand the number of attractions in The Hague and Rotterdam. It will also be seen whether any of the other 24 municipalities included in The Hague and Rotterdam regions would like to join in. The goal is to launch one common pass for the entire metropolitan region in 2013.
Ooievaarspas and Rotterdampas
The Hague’s Ooievaarspas can now be purchased only by minimum wage earners, people 65 years and older and students. The Rotterdampas is available to everyone but minimum wage earners, students and people 65 years and older receive a discount. Pass holders from both cities can now already use their passes at a number of attractions in each other’s cities. The number of attractions will continue to expand.
