Bikes are also available through our self service bike hire 7 days a week and 24 hours a day at docking station ”Gare”(in front of the railway station) and “Batobus”(Quai des Indes)

Several hire options are available: 2 hours, 12 hours and 24 hours

To hire a bike, you just need to get access to the terminal at the docking station with your credit card. Follow the instructions on the screen and you are inside the station to take your bike and you are gone!

You can also contact our service at the agency to get a badge.

To return the bike, you need to go to the docking station where you hired it and take it back by checking carefully that the bike is locked properly: a message must appear on the blue box on the handlebar which indicates that the bike is locked and a long signal tone ends the bike hire.
