Check availability of OV-fiets bicycles

With the NS app, you can check how many OV-fiets bicycles are available at the station of your choice. Handy for planning your journey from door to door!

How does it work?

  • Simply download the latest version of the NS app for free from the App Store or Google Play.
  • In the NS app menu, select the heading 'More', 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. Above each location there is 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.


Number of bicycles available

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 'Available bicycles' in the screen for the selected OV-fiets storage facility, you will see the explanation of the number of OV-fiets bicycles available in that location.

Next, select 'Feedback' and click on the suitable smiley emoticon to indicate whether the number of OV-fiets bicycles available was correct, and whether there were more or less bicycles available than indicated.
