Helsinki bike season starts on 1 April
City bikes will return to the streets on Helsinki on 1 April and will last until the end of October, said the City of Helsinki in a press release on Monday.
Season passes became available for purchase on 21 March. Other passes become available once the season starts.
The stations, number of bikes and routes to the stations are available in the Journey Planner in real time.
A pass for the entire seven-month cycling season costs 35 euros. People can also buy a pass for a shorther period of time, that is, for one day or a week, once the city bike season starts.
A daily pass costs 5 euros, while a weekly pass is 10 euros. All passes include an unlimited number of rides during their period of validity.
Installing the bike stations has been challenging due to the heavy snowfall that we have been experiencing during the winter, which is why all stations will not be available by early April.
However, the goal is to have all the stations installed during April. The easiest way to find all the stations is via the Journey Planner.
