City bikes are a cheap and convenient way to get from A to B in the city. Most people use this as a supplement to their own bike, as an alternative to public transport, or just because it’s a fun way to discover Oslo.
The city bikes in Oslo is a collaboration between Oslo municipality and Clear Channel Norway AS, which the municipality makes public advertising space available and gets a city bike offer in return. UIP owns and operates the city bikes in Oslo
On average, more than 30.000 people in Oslo use the city bikes. During a day the bikes are out on around 10.000 trips.
If you have a valid subscription, you can use the bike as much as you want during the opening hours, picking it up from one rack and deliver it to another. You can unlock a bike with Oslo City Bike app on your phone. Alternatively, you can use your phone number and a personal PIN code at a station's display.

Heydays has developed the visual identity for Oslo Bysykkel.
