Bart Christiaens

Working at City of Rotterdam


Educated as a traffic engineer, Bart worked for traffic consultancy organisations and various municipalities in The Netherlands for over fifteen years. Since 2018 Bart is the cycling policy coordinator for the city of Rotterdam (Netherlands). The last one and a half year Rotterdam has developed a new bike policy (Fietskoers 2025) and a new policy for sharing bikes, electric mopeds and electric scooters. Rotterdam focusses not only on cycling but on stimulating active mobility, in cluding walking and liveable green areas.

Bart and his colleagues are working with three programmes for cycling:

A. improving cycle routes

B. improving bike parking & developing hubs

C. stimulating cycling and road safety.

In all his projects Bart works closely together with:

- colleagues from public space, urban development and public health

- relevant institutions such as schools, police, housing cooperatives

- stakeholders such as residents, children and advocacy groups.

DCE expertise: mobility transition (from auto-minded towards more public transport and cycling usage), VRI innovations, cycling & data and the social side of cycling and walking.

Languages: Dutch, German, English
