Wear gloves when cycling
We have developed the error report system from last year and a new feedback channel will be introduced in April. You can file an error report on your personal city bike page in the ride history. The station and bike details will be automatically added in the report. You can log in to your personal city bike page using your HSL account.
You can also file an error report without logging in, in which case you must enter the name of the station or bike number yourself.
Last year there were occasional problems with the readers on the bikes but the devices will be updated in May.
NB! Because of the coronavirus epidemic, please wear gloves when cycling. Remember also to wash your hands often. The bikes are cleaned during servicing.
As public transport services have been reduced because of the virus, the bikes provide a good alternative mode of transport for short journeys. It is also easier to keep distance from other people when cycling than on public transport.
