About Oslo City Bike

About 50,000 people in Oslo use city bikes, and in 2016 over 2.1 million bike trips were made in Oslo. We have a dedicated live usage page where you can see how the bikes are being used right now.

The city bike scheme in Oslo is a collaboration between the city of Oslo and Clear Channel Norway AS. The municipality makes public advertising space available and gets a city bike space in return. The scheme is financed by subscriptions, advertisements on the racks, and sponsorship.

Urban Infrastructure Partner AS owns and operates the city bike scheme in Oslo, on behalf of Clear Channel Norway AS.

What do we do?

Fill and empty the stations
For the right amount of bikes to be in the right place at the right time every day, we have a crew and cars that are out working from morning to night. If a station is about to be filled up with bikes or gets emptied, the crew gets notified.

Repair bicycles
Our bikes take an average of 10 trips each day, and therefore require regular lubrication, washing, and love.

Help our users
We’re available to offer information and answer questions by email, telephone, and Facebook. We also talk with users directly in the app, or here on the website.

Continue to develop the service
We’re here to make sure that more and more people are using the city bikes. To make this happen, we’re working to make the bikes better, keep the apps and website updated, and develop new ideas.
