Veturilo

19 Jul 2019
Warsaw has cemented its big-city credentials by having a city-wide bike rental fleet, and the numbers are impressive. With 380 stations (including 11 electric bike stations) spread throughout all of Warsaw's districts offering 5,500 bikes there’s no question you’ll be spotting the silvery fleet flying through the city’s streets. And why not try one yourself? The Veturilo (meaning 'vehicle' in Esperanto) system is ridiculously easy: set up an account online (en.veturilo.waw.pl) and pay the initial 10zł fee. Once you’re registered you can visit any of the stations and select your ride, which has its own individual code. Simply scan the bike's QR code, or if you don't want to use your phone, dial and enter your phone number, your PIN and the bike’s code into the station's screen, and you’ll unlock the bicycle from the stand. Then you’re off! The first 20 minutes are free, and from there you pay 1zł for 21-60 minutes, 3zł for the second hour, 5zł for the third, and 7zł for each hour after that up to 12 hours. There’s a 200zł fee for exceeding 12 hours, and a 2,000zł cost for replacing a lost or damaged bike, so behave yourself. Electric bikes work slightly differently - the first 20 minutes are free, 6zł for 21-60 minutes, 14zł for each hour after that up to 12 hours. There’s a 300zł fee for exceeding 12 hours, and a whopping 12,000zł cost for replacing a lost or damaged bike. When you're done, pop your bike back into the stand at any of the stations, or if the stands are full, confirm your return via the station's machine and use the bike chain to secure your bike to another bike, and you’re finished. Service available Mar-Nov.

So the bikes are only for people with a polish cellphone, and a polish bank card linked to an address in Poland.

The card also requires using your phone too. From the ZTM website: "It will also be possible to rent a bike with the use of Warszawska Karta Miejska (Warsaw City Card) or student electronic card (ELS). It will be necessary to register either card – during the first or a subsequent rental by drawing the card near the reader after entering the mobile phone number or a PIN."

How do I get a veturilo card? Isn't that easier instead of calling?

Once you've registered online and linked a bank or credit card to your account, you'll get a pin that you can enter at any of the bike stations. That way Veturilo deducts the money for the amount of time you use the bike directly from your account.
