Low-emission zone

Amsterdam has new low-emission zones that keep the most polluting passenger cars, trucks, delivery vans, taxis, buses and scooters out of the city. With the low-emission zone, Amsterdam wants to improve the air quality in the city. The new low-emission zones for Amsterdam fit within the national harmonization scheme for low-emission zones. During the harmonization in 2020, the low-emission zone has been aligned within the A10 ring road, as a result of which the RAI has come to lie within the low-emission zone.

In the coming years, the requirements that apply within the low-emission zone will be tightened up further. From 2022 this will have an impact on traffic around the RAI. The aim is also to have 100% emission-free transport in the low-emission zones from 2025 - 2030.
