The municipality of Amsterdam has enlisted barges with bike racks to tackle the city´s bike parking problem. Even Amsterdam citizens have to get used to the concept.
The barges have been situated in locations where parking space has diminished because of construction work on the new metro line. Because not all cyclists know where to find these barges, they have been made extra visible. The barges are draped in bright red banners, styled similar to the Amsterdam logo. Signs in the vicinity indicate the direction to the barges.
