The Velo city bikes are a form of public transport, they take you anywhere you want to be and are easily combinable with train, tram and bus. You can only use the Velo bikes for short trips. That is why the first half-hour of every rental is included in the price. If you use the bike longer, then you pay extra. For bike trips of half a day or more we recommend that you rent a bike from a bicycle rental company.
