There are 121 conveniently located stations, often in the vicinity of subway stations or rapid transit stations.
The green way through Vienna: To date, the Citybikes have covered over 33 million kilometers on 10 million trips and saved about 1,950 tonnes of CO2.

Rental: The rental period begins when you remove the Citybike from the bike box and ends when you place the Citybike back in a bike box. – Always wait for the green light to light up; only then does the rental period end.
Ideally, you should plan tours in advance. Vienna has 1,400 km of bike paths. – Explore the city on your own on a bike tour along the Ringstrasse boulevard and take a detour to the idyllic Danube Island. Or what about a guided bike tour?

Citybike without registration
The RadSTATION at Vienna Main Station offers a special service for tourists: You can rent several bikes at once with your credit card, without having to register with Citybike.
This is how it works: Leave your credit card details as security with RadSTATION, receive the desired number of Citybike Tourist Cards (one per bike) for the desired length of time) – and off you pedal. A Tourist Card authorizes use of a Citybike. The bill is worked out when you return the card, customers pay on location (card rental fee: €2.50 per day + the fee of Citybike Wien).
