The Dutch integrate transit and bikes seamlessly. Bikes are allowed on the Metro and Sprinter but a ticket must be purchased for the bike when going on Sprinter. They are not allowed on the tram and buses, this is because those are usually shorter distances and bikes can easily make that journey. Bicycle parking is well thought out near a transit station, it is placed either outside near an entrance or there is an underground parking garage that is near the train station. Some stations the parking is connected to the station and you literally walk into the station without going outside. To get the bike to the platform they have made accommodations by putting in bicycle friendly stairway with a track to push the bike up or down. For the train cars there is a bicycle on the outside of the door clearly stating bikes can to in that door. There are larger turnstiles for the bikes to go through for the Metro or Sprinter. Rental bikes are also available at the train station for someone who does not want to bring their bike on board but needs a bike on the other side.
The Dutch measure transit performance by reliability and speed. This is placed on a scale from 1 to 10, 1 being bad 10 great, 5 average. There was a point were Amsterdam was ranked 6.0 but increased to 7.0. They have made transit reliable and responsive by having less stops for the trams, also decreasing the encounters at intersections of trams and vehicular traffic at intersections. Adding an extra subway line from the North to the South will also make transit reliable and responsive. It will serve more people and a restructuring of the network will increase their reliability and responsiveness.
