Brainport Bereikbaar looks at various smart and sustainable travel solutions on behalf of and in collaboration with 21 municipalities. An example of this is going to work by bicycle. That is why there is now a free e-bike trial campaign for residents who live up to 15 to 20 kilometers from work.
Thanks to Brainport Bereikbaar's e-bike trial campaign, you can see whether cycling to work is something for you. Experience how fun, healthy and sustainable smarter travel can be!

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the promotion work?

  • Register via the reservation portal and fill in your details.
  • Choose a distribution location near you
  • Choose the electric bicycle that suits you best
  • Select the period in which you want to try the e-bike.
  • Collect the e-bike at the chosen delivery point on the agreed date.

Can I participate for free?

Yes, the promotion is completely free.

Why are you doing this trial?

We all want to keep the Brainport region accessible. But then it also requires all of us to make a smart choice: the car must (occasionally) make way for the bicycle. In concrete terms, this means that you can try out an e-bike for a week to cycle to work. In addition to contributing to accessibility, it is of course also very healthy, good for the environment and you save on fuel costs.

What does this trial campaign entail?

Commuters who use the car as a means of transport for commuting every day can test an e-bike for a week. The e-bike is a good and realistic alternative if you live 15 to 20 kilometers from work.

How long does the promotion run?

The promotion runs until December 31, 2023.

Can I participate multiple times?

No, it is not possible to participate more than once. In this way we give as many residents as possible the opportunity to try an e-bike to work.

What should I do after booking?

After booking you will receive a confirmation. This states where and when you can pick up your e-bike. It also contains your reservation number. Make sure you have this at hand when you pick up the bicycle.

Can I also cancel my reservation?

Yes that is possible. The confirmation contains a link to cancel your reservation. Or contact the De Boom en het Meer support desk: or 085 8769024.

Can I also pick up the bicycle on a different day than stated in the confirmation?

No, unfortunately that is not possible. We work with fixed return and issue days on which we reserve time to check the bicycles. This way we are sure that the next user will receive an e-bike in top condition.

I'm having bad luck on the road. What should I do?

Very annoying, but fortunately De Boom en het Meer has a breakdown service. You will be picked up and taken to your destination. Call 085 – 8769024 to speak directly to someone from the support desk. Outside office hours you can contact ENRA Alarmservice directly. ENRA provides the breakdown service for the Boom and the Meer. In that case, call 088 8778044. ENRA may ask for a policy number/insurance number. You will find this in the confirmation.

What if the e-bike breaks down, is stolen or if I have other problems with the e-bike?

Is there something wrong with the e-bike during the trial week? Then contact the issuing location or the support desk of De Boom en het Meer. Call 085 8769024 to speak directly to someone from the support desk or

If your e-bike cannot be repaired, De Boom en het Meer will arrange a replacement e-bike within 24 hours.

What can I do as an employer to get my employees to cycle more?

We have special in-house e-bike trial pools for employers. Use the accompanying communication material to inform employees about the promotion and give them the opportunity to try an e-bike for one week. You can also make cycling more attractive with a leasing arrangement or special travel allowance for people who cycle. View the options for employers and inquire with a mobility broker about the possibilities.

What does Brainport Bereikbaar do?

We facilitate and encourage mobility solutions that are better, faster, cleaner and healthier. No promises for the future, but results on the street. We cannot do that alone. We involve travelers, employers, educational institutions and the logistics sector. We work together with and on behalf of the 21 municipalities in South-East Brabant and SmartwayZ.NL.

Can we also participate in other Brainport Bereikbaar actions?

The e-bike trial campaign is one of the first campaigns that we will roll out in the region in the coming period. There are certainly more promotions to come. You can go through sign up for the monthly update. This way you stay informed of the latest promotions.
