To bring their business to sustainable mobility, more and more public and private organisations have service bikes. “Company bikes”, why not? They offer many advantages: in Brussels, travelling by bike is faster than travelling by car or public transport. You lose no time searching for a parking space and the bike takes up less space. It is all cheaper of course and better for health and the environment…
You can purchase used service bikes via the depot, or rent new bikes on a long term lease (leasing) – customised to your organisation colours or not. These bikes are equipped with 2 padlocks, a saddlebag and 3 or 7 gears as preferred. We provide the maintenance and repairs on site. In this way, the bikes are always in order and ready to use. In addition, you are always welcome at one of the Brussels bike points.
There is the OV-fiets in the Netherlands: since May 2011 there is also the Blue-bike in Belgium. This is in fact a “shared bike”. You register in advance for a subscription at €10/year and can then rent a good city bike for only €3/day from the bike points in 44 Belgian stations, including Brussels North, Central, Luxembourg and South stations. Ideal to combine train and bike in Belgium!
How does it differ from Villo?
- It is available anywhere in Belgium, not only in Brussels
- The user: the Blue-bike is aimed at travellers from across the country who regularly or occasionally travel to other cities and then cycle.
- Rental period: a Blue-bike subscriber can keep the bike for the whole day. You don’t travel from A to B, but from A to A, where you take the train again.
Second-hand children’s bikes are available at the Bockstael CyCLO workshop. Schools and associations can also rent second-hand children’s bikes from the Quai workshop.
