You no longer need a key for the OV-fiets

NS is introducing an electronic lock for the public transport bicycle that opens with the public transport chip card. This makes it easier and faster for travelers to rent an OV bicycle.

The bicycle shed at Apeldoorn station is the first. Here, all 400 public transport bicycles are equipped with this new lock, whereby the public transport chip card replaces the bicycle key.

In 2021, more and more public transport bicycles will receive the new public transport bicycle lock. It is expected that approximately 70 percent of public transport bicycles will be fitted with the new lock by the end of the year.

The electronic lock opens by holding an OV chip card against the lock. If there is an OV bicycle subscription on the OV chip card, the lock will open automatically. When returning the OV-fiets, the rental is automatically terminated after the lock is closed.
