This year Belgians had to deal with high levels of congestion mostly in city areas, such as Brussels, Antwerp, and Leuven. However, there is also some good news. According to the Belgian Touring, congestion is more evenly distributed throughout the day in 2017, compared to 2016, as Belgians are making some changes in their commuting behavior. For instance, they are entering their offices earlier or later in the day.  Also, the traffic more evenly distributed throughout the day, which means an increase in congestion during off-peak hours,  between 10am and 3pm. The latter hints at a shift in commuting behavior. Several initiatives to reduce traffic congestion have originated. Both the government and companies are exploring schemes to improve the traffic flow and the commute of road users, such as car sharing and e-bike sharing. For instance, in the town of Sint-Truiden, a car-sharing program is currently being tested, through which it will possible to share government cars between town inhabitants. Booking a car in this town will be possible through a mobile application. If proven successful, the initiative would go live from December 2017. Similarly, the municipality of Nijlen is exploring a car-sharing program. This town’s government noticed an increasing number of inhabitants selling their cars to make use of the bike or public transport to get to their offices and back. In other words, an opportunity to further reduce car ownership. Bike sharing companies are also becoming quite popular in larger cities, such as Brussels or Antwerp. Companies such as oBike, Villo! and BillyBikes offer yearly subscriptions to rent bikes. The Flemish government has in 2017 signed different deals with similar initiative-owners, such as to impulse the reduction of traffic. Through their Green Deal Shared Mobility program, the Flemish government aims at increasing car sharing scheme participants from 28,000 to 80,000 by 2020, as well as doubling the number of carpoolers from 500 to 1000, and bike-sharers from 196,000 to 400,000. Local initiatives, such as SlimSpitsen, with the support of the larger SlimNaarAntwerpen program, incentivize road users to choose alternative commuting behavior so as to avoid traffic congestion. It is not possible to think about improving mobility without considering a reduction in car emissions. Current changes in the buying behavior of Europeans, and especially of Belgians, hint at an attitude change towards the environment. The electric car in Europe has become a significant sales success, increasing by 61% in 2017, with 23.841 car units sold. Especially in Belgium, the purchase of electric vehicles has increased by 21% in 2017, compared to 2016. The government of Belgium will also be working on road expansion with rush hour lanes in the coming years, investing around 64 million euros on four rush-hour lanes in the areas of Brussels, Gent, Leuven, and Lummen. Newly-added rush hour lanes have generated interesting results, such as a reduction of between 59% and 90% in lost time due to traffic. These results motivate the government to invest in these lane additions. As described in this article, the efforts in Belgium vary from personal ones, such as the decision of commuting less, to local ones, such as the multiple government initiatives that impulse car-ownership reduction. According to the cited publications, behaviors and mobility trends are changing in this country in 2017, which set a foundation for an to improved mobility and its environmental impact in the coming times.
