Bicycling in the Netherlands

Saturday, June 15th, 2013

Pedal-powered transportation is increasingly getting popular at tourist destinations. Many cities and towns have developed advanced systems for tourists to rent or borrow a bike. The idea is to provide attractive services, but also to limit car trafic in dense areas for the benefit of those who visit and for the benefits of inhabitants.

Dutch cities have a long record for innovative bicycle policies. Arnhem and Nijmegen have implemented fully automated rentals, which are located near train stations, car parks etc. The BIKEDISPENSER can push out a bike, when the user inserts a card and a deposit. It is easy and convenient.
