Amsterdam’s city’council announced that cars and motorcycles running on gasoline or diesel will be banned from the city from 2030. People are encouraged to replace cars with electric and hydrogen cars. 

In 2020 the city will ban diesel cars built before 2005 and then slowly expand the range of banned vehicles up until 2030.

It’s not only cars that will be affected by the ban – the city aims to be free of any gasoline- or diesel-fueled vehicles by the end of the next decade, which includes also the boats mooring on the famous canals. According to the city council, they won’t be allowed anymore in the city centre after 2025.
