About Oslo City Bike

The most efficient way to get around Oslo is on a bike. City bikes are primarily used for short rides and as a supplement to public transport. About 100,000 people in Oslo use city bikes, and in 2018 over 2.7 million bike trips were made.

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 stations, and sponsorship.

Who’s behind Oslo City Bike?

UIP Oslo Bysykkel AS develops, owns and operates the bike sharing scheme in Oslo.

When can I use the bikes?

Bikes can be unlocked from 5 in the morning until 1am.

What do we do

Fill and empty the stations

For the right number 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

Bikes in a sharing system are frequently used, and therefore require regular lubrication, washing, and love.
