OV-fiets in the Travel Planner Xtra app
The Travel Planner Xtra app offers a new functionality: you can check how many OV-fiets bicycles are available at the station of your choice. Handy information for planning your journey from door to door!
How does it work?
- Simply download the latest version of the Travel Planner Xtra app for free from the App Store or Google Play.
- In the Travel Planner Xtra menu, select the heading 'Services' and then 'OV-fiets'. The app will use your current location to find OV-fiets locations near you. You can also use the search function to find a specific station or OV-fiets location. Plus, each location displays a blue icon with the number of available OV-fietsen at that location. Simply touch a location for more information about opening hours and OV-fiets availability.
- When you select the heading 'Stations' in the menu to look for information about a station, you can see whether that station has an OV-fiets location under the tab 'Services'. Select 'OV-fiets' to display the map with locations and availability.
The number of bicycles available is meant as a tool to help you as a traveler. The information is updated every 15 minutes. This number is reliable, but it may not represent the exact number of bicycles available at a given moment, as the information may be a few minutes old and OV-fiets bicycles may have been rented or returned since the last update.
In order to help us improve the app, you can enter feedback about your experience. When you select 'Fietsen beschikbaar' in the screen for the selected OV-fiets storage, you will see the explanation of the number of OV-fiets bicycles.
Next, select 'Geef feedback' and choose the appropriate emoticon to describe your experience. You can also indicate whether the number of OV-fiets bicycles available was correct and whether there were more or less bicycles available than indicated.
