Visitors to Europe’s largest in-land marina will now be able to use a new driverless hop-on hop-off bus in, what is believed to be, the first of its kind to operate in a European marina.
Jachthaven Biesbosch, in Drimmelen, the Netherlands has been identified as a suitable location for the scheme by a Future Mobility Network group which includes the local council and various Dutch Universities.
The scheme will run for 10 weeks over the summer running from the eastern end of the marina near the Beachclub, to the old Drimmelen Harbour to the west of the Jachthaven.
Manager of Jachthaven Biesbosch Renate Ilmer believes this new scheme will bring a wide range of new visitors to the area. “We’re incredibly proud that we’ve been identified as a suitable location for such a scheme. With the marina growing by the year with new eateries, attractions and shops, a new project like this will only benefit our customers and other local businesses.”
