Renting from an OV-fiets station
At the moment, there are four OV-fiets stations in the Netherlands: in Utrecht at the Moreelsepark and the Janskerkhof, and in Rotterdam at the Wilhelminaplein and the Marconiplein. If you have an OV-fiets season ticket, you can pick up an OV-fiets at these stations.
Joint test with OV-fiets stations
The OV-fiets stations at Janskerkhof and the Moreelsepark in Utrecht are test locations for a new rental system. The joint test in partnership with the cities of Utrecht and Rotterdam is intended to study whether an automated system for OV-fiets rental works at the street level, and if the system is user-friendly enough.
Retrieving an OV-fiets
Hold your bicycle rental card in front of the sign: 'Houd hier uw pas' and follow the instructions on the display. After you select (1 = OV-fiets huren), the key machine will open and you can remove the illuminated key. Find the OV-fiets with the number that corresponds to the number on the key ring and remove it from the rack.
Returning an OV-fiets
Place the OV-fiets in a free spot in the rack. Use the chain to lock the bicycle to the ring at the end of the rack, then remove the key from the lock.
Hold your card in front of the sign: 'Houd hier uw pas' and follow the instructions on the display. After you select (2 = OV-fiets terugbrengen), the key machine will open. Place the pin of the key ring in one of the open holes, and the key machine will close automatically.
