The business park Rivium operations are currently facing an increased number of passengers daily as a result of building works adjacent to the track. Due the construction of a new parking facility, the bike path and walkway adjacent to the track have had to be closed down, with the people being carried by the ParkShuttle system.
As the construction also diminishes the number of parking spots available, a temporary parking has been created on the other side of the A16. Passengers that used to get directly on the metro, now first use the ParkShuttle to get to the metro.
As a result the capacity of the ParkShuttle system is not sufficient any longer to deal with the demand on the system. For this purpose operating company ConneXXion has added two manually driven mini-busses to the operations. One mini-bus serves the passengers with bikes, while the other serves as a short connection between the temporary parking at the metro station.
The video provides an impression of a typical morning rush hour with the arrival of metro. The images are taken from a CCTV camera part of the system and accelerated – the real time interval is approximately 20 minutes.
