The visit of Lookman Oshodi to the City of Rotterdam, The Netherlands to attend the opening parts of the sixth edition of the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (IABR–2014–URBAN BY NATURE), 2014 from May 27 to June 2, 2014 provided a vibrant opening to have visual observations of the transport infrastructure and to meet with key officials driving the transport system in the city.

 

The transport system in Rotterdam, the city of estimated 618,357 people, is characterized by different modes ranging from walking, cycling, scooters, cars, buses, trams, and trains to water taxis. The system is intelligently integrated, functional, timely and efficient.

 

Despite array of transport modes, more people appear to be taking to bicycles. This is creating demand deficit for other modes especially buses and trams within the city as confirmed by the Senior Advisor, Traffic and Public Transport, City of Rotterdam, Mr. Martin Guit.

 

Sights and sounds from Rotterdam revealed further details on the mechanism of intelligence transport infrastructure in the city.
