How do I collect the bike from a station after I have registered in Föli and bought the service?

To start using the bike, you will need a Föli Travel Card or a phone number that is entered to your user profile during registration. You may start using the bike by

1) pressing OK and setting the Föli card on the card reader located above the back tire. Wait until you hear a short sound signal and you can remove the cable lock. 

Or

2) entering your phone number (358-xx-xxxxxxx)on the keyboard located above the back tire and pressing OK. Then, enter the personal six-digit PIN code defined during the registration and press OK. After that, you will hear a short sound signal and you can remove the cable lock.

Check the bike, adjust the saddle and enjoy your ride.

Later on, it will be possible to start using the bike also with a mobile application, and instructions concerning this will be available when the application is in use. 

How should the bike be returned to the station after the ride?

After the ride, the user returns the bike to any of the city bike stations. The user confirms the returning of the bike by pressing the OK button on the keyboard and then locks the bike to an empty space in the rack and pulls the cable lock inside the handlebar to the place appointed for the cable. After this, you will hear a signal sound after you have returned the bike successfully.

Frequently asked questions

 

What is the city bike-share system?

The city bike-share system consists of bikes that are for public use and which can be picked up and dropped off at bike stations. It is also possible to leave the bike locked for a short time at a place other than a bike station—for example, when visiting a store.

 

The “Föli-fillarit” city bikes provide a quick and easy way of getting around the city centre and are meant mainly for short-term use. The bikes will be available all year round and in winter they are equipped with winter tyres.

 

How does the system work?

The city bike-share system is a part of Föli Turku Region Traffic and the system is based on user identification, which makes the system safe and helps to minimise the risk of misuse.

The subscriber of the system is the City of Turku and it is a part of the sustainable mobility project CIVITAS ECCENTRIC. The supplier of the system is Nextbike Polska S.A. https://nextbike.pl/en/
