Employees, to whom the employer wishes to offer the possibility of using city bikes, are registered as city bike users at hsl.fi/kaupunkipyörät. A city bike account is created for each employee and each employee gets a 7-digit cyclist ID and 4-digit PIN code. The company’s payment card details are entered on the service website. Season pass fees and any overage fees (when a bike ride is longer than 30 minutes) are charged to the company’s payment card. Please note, that also any penalty fees (80 euros if the maximum 5-hour ride time is exceeded, or 400 euros if a bike is not returned within 24 hours) are charged to the employer. Invoices do not detail the users of city bikes.
As each employee has a personal city bike account, they can replace the 7-digit cyclist ID with their Travel Card the first time they pick up a city bike. This makes picking up a bike at a bike station easier as the employees only need their Travel Card and personal PIN code.
If the employer wants to control the use of the bikes, a written authorization is needed from the employees to obtain data on their bike use from CityBike Finland.
