Has anyone tried the OV-Fiets city-bike system that exists across the Netherlands? It seems like a pretty good deal (check out a bike for 3.50EUR per day, with the option to rent electric mopeds/scooters as well) but seems targeted at locals. I can't spot any residency requirements... but I'd love to hear that someone has had success signing up for it and using it. There are references to needing a smart card but it is ambiguous as to whether this is a card you receive on sign up or a required possession of a chip-and-pin credit/debit card (which I don't have).
