I'Velo Urban

We spend our days between traffic lights and desktops. We breathe the air we breathe, we are sedentary and, at least once a year, we would like to change our lifestyle!

You've got where you need to go: choose I’Velo Urban, the first and largest bike-sharing system in Romania.

We already have 6 years and 22 stations, and the growth of our project demonstrates an increase in the popularity of the bicycle as a utility vehicle, which generates an increasing need for integration in this sustainable and healthy system.

If we have convinced you, we will give you some useful details about our service and the facilities you have.

Remember that the bike/electric scooter can be rented with a valid subscription, which will allow you to use the bike/scooter unlimited. You can ride your bike/scooter in sessions of 2 hours with the mention that, during the 2 hours, the "Extra time" button will be activated, and you will decide, whether or not to extend the riding session. Exceeding the riding period without scanning the bike entails additional costs.

In addition, with the I’Velo subscription you have access to the I’Velo Relax bicycles and scooters, those in the parks. Don't forget to return the bike/scooter from where you took them: those from the automated stations to any other automated station, those from the Relax centers, to another Relax center.

Exceeding the minutes included in the pedaling session entails additional costs.
