AMS Healthy Urban Route Planner

Healthy Urban Route Planner

Get somewhere quick, or get somewhere healthy? Quickest route, shortest route, route with the least traffic… Contemporary route planners offer people an array of route choices for getting from A to B. But with pollution rates varying from street to street, what about the most healthy route?

Addressing this, our Healthy Urban Route Planner (HURP) team is working on the technology that’ll provide cyclists and pedestrians in Amsterdam the opportunity to choose not for the quickest, shortest or aesthetically pleasing route, but the route with the least air pollution.
