Jokes aside, Veturilo is one of the largest urban bike systems in Europe, with 366 stations and 5 292 bicycles.
Did you know that Veturilo means “vehicle” in Esperanto? The name was chosen among thousands of other suggestions from internet users.
What else do you need to know about the Veturilo Bikes?
1) They are very cheap
It’s actually FREE to rent a bike for the first 20 minutes (but you have to pay for registration: 10PLN one-time fee). If you time your trip maniacally, you can use them for free, forever. Check out the price list here.
2) They are everywhere in the city!
Here is the official map. I also created my own map with Google’s “my maps”, so that you can use it in Google maps and get directions to the nearest station (you can’t do that with the official maps).
3) There are also E-bikes.
9 of the 366 station are equipped with Electric bikes. At the moment, however, all of these stations are in the center of Warsaw (Powiśle).
