With this terrific new magazine for and about the Central District. It’s certainly well-deserved, because what a fabulous place this is! With startups and established multinationals, fledgling creatives alongside big-time investors, and hotspots with still a few rough edges, there’s room for everyone here. And that makes this the place to be in Rotterdam.
Connect, share, sustain
We’re eager to help make this district even better. And we embrace your values: to connect, share and sustain. Last summer, we launched our SIXT share carsharing service here, making hundreds of share cars available to everyone in and around Rotterdam’s city centre through the SIXT app. SIXT share cars can be parked anywhere in the service area, making it super convenient. And we’re connecting Rotterdam with other major centres as well, because you can also drive our share cars to The Hague, Amsterdam or the airport and leave them parked there. Saves on parking fees, too! It goes without saying that all of our cars are fully electric, helping to make urban life that much more pleasant.
We’re proud to be one of the first shared mobility services in Rotterdam. Together with public transport and other shared mobility providers, we’re working towards a future in which it’s no longer necessary to own your own car. Not only is it cleaner, it also creates more space for people. Efficient use of just a single share car translates to 12 fewer private cars on the road. And that in turn frees up space for more productive uses than vehicle parking. We’re thrilled that the City is also on board and swiftly expanding carsharing facilities, so we can create more space and make Rotterdam Central District more accessible than ever.
And, should you need a car for longer, you can always drop by our office in the Hilton on Hofplein to hire a car. We look forward to serving you and hope to greet you as soon as circumstances allow at one of our many hotspots in the Central District!
