Bikedispenser.com is an Amsterdam firm which rents out bikes to urban cyclists. This firm uses an automated machine to dispense bikes. Cyclists can hire a bike after paying a small fee, and then return it to the original machine or the other one across town.
The bikes come with RFID tags, purportedly for security reasons. It’s a small inconvenience users put up with, as it’s possible to track their movements. Still it’s a great way to do something eco-friendly for a change.
