Renting from a bicycle carousel

The OV-fiets carousel is an automated unmanned rental location. If your OV-chipkaart has an OV-fiets season ticket, then you can rent a bicycle from the facility.


Renting an OV-fiets from a bicycle carousel

At the front of the carousel, you can find the instructions to the left and the control panel to the right. Place your card on the control panel and follow the instructions on the display. The carousel will rotate to bring an OV-fiets to the front, after which the door will open automatically and you can remove the bicycle from the carousel. When you are done, the door will close automatically. If you wish to rent another bicycle, simply place your card on the card reader again and repeat the steps above.

Returning an OV-fiets

When you want to return a bicycle to the carousel, hold your card in front of the control panel to the right of the carousel door, then follow the instructions on the display. The door will open automatically and you can place the bicycle back into the slot. Make sure that you push the bicycle all the way to the front. When you are done, the door will close automatically. If you wish to return multiple bicycles, hold your card in front of the card reader again and repeat the steps above.
