All cycling stations will be available by April

Due to heavy snowfall this winter, some of the bike stations were not installed in time, and not all have been installed by April 1st. However, all stations will be installed by the end of April.

However, all stations are expected to be in place during April. Available stations can be found on the City Bikes website and Route Planning. Customers can enable location sharing in Route Planner, which displays Nearest Bike Stations, the number of bikes available and the route to the station. You can get the same information by entering the address in the Route Guide. The route guide can be found in HSL’s mobile application and hsl.fi website.

Three tips for smooth cycling in the city:

If the bike station is full, use the returned bike next to the stand to help keep the stations clean.

If you notice that the bike you have chosen is defective, turn its saddle backwards as a sign of failure. Remember to report the fault as well, so that the maintenance staff can repair the bike and it can be put back into use as soon as possible. There is a link to the error report here.

When you return the bike to the rack, make sure that a message appears on the bike display confirming the return.
