Amsterdam Transport Region tests icon for shared bicycles

The shared bicycle is a hot topic, especially in big cities. Amsterdam wants to tempt travelers to use public transport more often by offering shared bicycles as a solution for the ‘last mile’ of their journey. Shelters for shared bicycles have therefore been designated at various public transport locations.

For the Amsterdam Transport Region, Mijksenaar has developed an icon for shared bicycles. A sign with the icon marks the spots that are available for shared bicycles.

The icon for shared bicycles is currently being tested in the city of Amstelveen. With the input from this pilot the icon can, if necessary, be improved. If successful, other transport regions will also use the pictogram.
