In case when the return of your bike is not possible through electric lock (i.e. closed station or lack of free bike stand) secure the bike with the clamp. Open the clamp with a code obtained upon rental, connect the bike with another bike’s handle or with a fixed element of the station. Then, lock the clamp and shuffle the digits. Remember that a bike returned in such a way must be returned within the system also. In order to do so, approach the terminal and press Return. Follow the instructions displayed on the terminal screen. Bike connected in such a way may be retuned via mobile app or through contacting the telephone contact service.

You can connect a credit card with a registered account. In order to do this contact the Infoline or add a card at the terminal at the time when your account status is lower than 10 PLN.

 

  • What should I do when the system calculates an inncoret fee?

If an amount which the system calculated for your bike rental does not correspond with the factual state – just submit a complaint by sending a message to the address bok@bikerbialystok.pl. We have a maximum of 14 days to consider it, but we will strive to respond to it as quickly as we can. If post our verification it turns out that the system made an error, we will reimburse the entire, incorrectly calculated sum.

 

  • How many bikes can I rent?

You can rent a maximum of 4 bikes at once on one account. For each bike separately the system calculates the rental time, thus you do not need to return them all at the same time.

 

  • Can I take a break in my ride and leave a bike for several minutes?

Of course, however common sense is key in each such situation. Do not leave the bike in remote places or “risky” ones and secure it with a belt or with a digital lock, connecting it to a fixed, solid element and you may be sure nothing will happen to it. Be sure that no other person will be able to use your bike-secured for a moment, during a ride, with a digital lock-or rent it via mobile application or QR code, since the bike will be visible in the system as rented.

  • What should I do if the bike I rented gets stolen?

In case of a bike theft made during use, the lessee must immediately inform the Customer Office of this fact.

 

  • If I am registered in one system only, can I use bikes in other cities?

Our systems are compatible, registering in one of them enables bike rentals in all cities in Poland and worldwide where Nextbike is the Operator. It is worth to remember that each of the systems is characterized by its own price list and Terms of Service.

 

  • How can I identify myself upon rental via proximity card instead of telephone number of PIN number?

In order to facilitate and simplify the process of bike rental, identification may be conducted by means of each device which has the function of contact-free identifier. This is the majority of plastic proximity cards-i.e. City card, Electronic Student Card or the majority of payment cards. In order to register the card you must approach the terminal, enter the telephone number and PIN code and then place the card in the indicated place. Upon subsequent rental you may identify yourself at the terminal by means of the card, that is place the card in order to log in. If you wish to log in only by means of the card, without indicating PIN number-mark the option “ During each rental and return, for safety reasons, ask me about my PIN number” on your account on the portal www.bikerbialystok.pl.

 

  • Can I rent bikes by means of Nextbike application?

Of course, through the application you can rent a bike locked in the electric lock as well as one secured by means of the clamp. If you wish to rent a bike by means of the application you may select two options: entering its number in the application or scanning the QR code. The bike secured with electric lock will be automatically released if it is secured with a clamp the code to the clamp will be displayed in your mobile application.

 

  • After which time from the end of journey and return of a bike to the station can I rent a bike again at the same station?

Another bike may be rented straight away. If however you would like to rent the same bike-wait 3 minutes.
 

  • I have a problem with my rental-after indicating a telephone number and PIN number I am asked to indicate a credit card number as if I was to register myself from the beginning. What should I do?

Normally, during identification the request to enter a credit card number should not appear. Such a situation may occur if, for example, you enter an incorrect telephone number and the terminal will identify you as a new user who does not have the funds. The terminal asks for indication of credit card number also in a situation when there is less than 10PLN on the account. It is best if you try once more to enter your data correctly in order to log in or else, contact the Infoline.

 

  • There are no bikes on the station-why?

Nextbike relocation teams transport the bikes 24 hours a day in order to fill out the shortages on stations on an ongoing basis, however, we are not able to guarantee, especially during rash hours, that bikes will always be available at each station.
 

  • Will new stations be created?

We can declare that BiKeR operator will strive to develop the system and expand it with sponsored/patronage stations created in cooperation with companies from Białystok. In addition, please direct your suggestions of creating new stations to the address of Municipal Road Authority: bok@bikerbialystok.pl.
