In 1989, ProRail launched the project Ruimte voor de Fiets (Making way for the Bicycle). To make the railroad trip from door to door easier and more comfortable, ProRail is improving bicycle parking facilities and solving bicycle parking problems at train stations, by replacing and expanding and better utilizing of existing facilities and building new ones.

Since the launch, over 350,000 parking places have been built and renewed nationwide at over 400 train stations. The total number of parking places at train stations now numbers some 430,000 and this will increase to over 600,000 in the coming years.
