VILKKU BIKES CAN BE COLLECTED FROM THE STATIONS AND THE DESIGNATED RETURN ZONE

You can pick up any one of the available Vilkku bikes. Simply check the location of available bikes using your Freebike application or the map above. The map indicates the location of the citybike stations, the number of available bikes in each and the location of bikes outside the stations. Bikes used by others or waiting for maintenance are not visible on the map.
 
All Vilkku bikes are equipped with a GPS locator. When searching for an available Vilkku bike please note that the accuracy of the GPS locator in an urban environment may vary. Therefore the location of a bike may differ slightly from the one indicated on the map.
 
 

 

CITYBIKE STATIONS

Vilkku bikes are collected from and returned to citybike stations. The citybike stations can be recognized from a turquoise coloured sign containing the Vilkku bike logo and instructions for use.  The location of citybike stations is shown in the Freebike application and on the map above.
 
 
 
 

DESIGNATED RETURN ZONE

You may return a Vilkku bike also outside the citybike stations against an additional fee. Please note that the designated return zone is limited to the centre of Kuopio. A real-time data of bikes returned to the designated return zone is available in the Freebike application and on the map on this page.
 
 
 

 

WHERE NOT TO RETURN A BIKE

You may return a Vilkku bike only to a citybike station, or to the designated return zone against a fee. The Freebike application indicates if you are trying to return the bike to an area not designated as the return zone. Once you have successfully returned your bike, the lights will switch off. Note that after a successful return your responsibility for the bike ends.

If you find an available bike in an area not designated as the return zone, you may collect it and use it without any limitation or penalty fees.
