City Bikes

Helsinki’s brand new city bikes are a popular and convenient way of getting around the city.

The easiest way to take advantage of the city bike scheme is to register on the websiteörät. You can then use your personal cyclist ID or HSL Travel Card and a PIN code for collecting your bike. Bikes can also be borrowed using a payment card without registration from five bike stations: Kaivopuisto, Unioninkatu, Rautatientori/East, Kiasma and Hakaniemi Metro Station.

City bikes are shared-use bicycles that can be borrowed for a fee by anyone in central Helsinki, residents and visitors alike. In summer 2016 there are 500 bikes in 50 locations around the city. The bikes are available at bike stations around the city centre between Ruoholahti, Taka-Töölö and Sörnäinen. The bike stations are located at approximately 300-meter intervals. The area will be expanded in summer 2017 and more bikes will be added. The goal is for there to be 1500 bikes and 150 bike stationsby that time within an area extending from the heart of the city to Munkkiniemi, Pasila and Kumpula.
