IMPACT 02/06/2019 05:45 am ET Italy-based Fairbnb intends to invest half its profits back into the community.

Amsterdam is just one city where growth in Airbnb rentals has been accused of turning many homes into cash-raising assets rather than places to live. In New Orleans, the sharing economy has been accused of increasing social division, while in Barcelona, where surging tourism has been encouraged in part by platforms like Airbnb, street graffiti shouts, “Tourists go home, refugees welcome.” And cities are acting. Amsterdam, for example, has capped the number of nights Airbnb-style hosts can rent out their apartments to 30 (from … [Read more...] about Airbnb Is Accused Of Destroying Cities.

Scooters will be banned from Amsterdam’s bike lanes from next spring, making cycling in one of the world’s most pedal-friendly cities even safer. It can seem baffling to visitors to the Dutch capital that mopeds are able to speed along a cycle network used by Dutch residents and families and an increasing number of tourists, with many locals considering the vehicles a menace.

It is expected the measure, which applies to bike lanes within the A10 ring road, will reduce the number of accidents in the city by 260 a year. Anne Knol, campaign manager for mobility organisation Milieudefensie, tweeted: “From April onwards, you don’t have to breathe scooter fumes on most of Amsterdam’s bike paths.” Regular … [Read more...] about After a seven year battle, cycling in Amsterdam just got even safer
