Practical Information
Great Dutch Cities
AMSTERDAM - In 1966, a group of carhating anarchists persuaded the city to provide bicycles as a public resource: people could pick up a white bike, or witfiets, from the sidewalk so long as they also left it on the sidewalk after use. Only the first half of the idea caught on: before long, there were no white bicycles to be seen. Now Amsterdam is testing a more hardheaded version of the witfiets system. The new white bikes, with a distinctive low-slung design and no removable parts, will be stored in self-locking racks at 15 locations around the city center. To release a bike, users must insert a smart card "key" and select their destination depot on a computerized map. Rides will be free on lightly used routes & cost $1 on more popular ones; dawdlers' cards will be debited 5 cents/minute if they are more than half an hour late checking in at their destination.
