know that the current Amsterdam trial involved unlocking a bike
by inserting a smart-card in a slot. You have to re-lock the bike
upon arrival. It all sounds like a nuisance to me, and some people
will resist allowing their movements to be traced by their smart-card
activity. I have the idea that the Copenhagen system is much simpler;
find a bike, use it, walk away. I suppose some effort will be required
to make sure that bikes are located where they're needed. Copenhagen
is financed by advertising, so there may be some money to do this.
Is there anybody who would like to research this and write something
for Carfree Times?
