The Bikedispenser is described by its Dutch designers as a mobility solution. Members purchase a card that is swiped through the machine, dispensing them a bicycle for up to 24 hours for about $3.75. Imagine if such the Bikedispenser, I mean mobility solution, was installed in every large city. Bicycles would become ubiquitously convenient. Or perhaps these kind of quasi-socialist, communal, solutions are not universally translatable across all cultures and countries. Would this shared form of personal transport work in the United Sates? I’m not sure. Our culture of views personal property as an extension of our persons, a reflection of our personalities. Are Americans willing to give up our love affair with personal vehicles in favor of shared ones?
