The Dutch are pros when it comes to integrating transit and bikes. The stations have more than enough parking for bikes. There are usually a couple of racks outside, but tons of racks in a parking deck. The bike parking allows those parking bikes, the same access of a non-biking person. To bring bikes on transit, there is a special ticket that must be bought. The transit has signs on the outside of the doors, to let the cyclist know which entrance they must board. It is convenient being able to take bikes on a train after cycling a long distance.
The Dutch measure transit performance on a 1-10 scale. The recent transportation presentation stated that Amsterdam is currently at an 8. From what I experienced today in Amsterdam, the transit is amazing. People have the options to take buses, trams, trains, and ferry’s. All the transit options are on a time schedule, and always had real time travel information. The transit options are always reliable and frequent, recognizable, fast, and had cooperation between other transit associates.
