FAQ

If I am registered in one of the city bike systems of Nextbike, can I use the bikes in other cities?

Nextbike systems are compatible. This means that registration in one of them gives access to the other bike systems in Poland and the whole world, where Nextbike is the operator. It is good to remember, that every system has its own price list and terms of service.

How to register?

In order to use the bikes you have to fill in the registration form which you can find on the city bike system website, accept the terms of use and top up the newly created account with the so-called “initial payment” in the minimum amount of PLN10 or define a credit card as the payment method. You will receive an email from us, in which there is going to be a link that you need to click on in order to confirm your personal details. As soon as the amount is recognized within the account or the card is assigned to the account – rentals are available. You can also register using the terminal, the Nextbike mobile application or by contacting the 24/7 Call Center

As soon as the amount is recognized within the account or the card is assigned to the account – rentals are available.

How can I identify myself during rental with the use of the proximity card instead of the telephone number and a PIN number?

In order to make the process of bike rental simpler, the identification has been made possible by means of any device with a contactless identifier function. It is the majority of contactless cards with an RFID reader – for example a city card, an Electronic Student ID card and the majority of payment cards. In order to register the card, you should approach the terminal, enter the phone number and PIN code, and then place the card in the designated place. Upon the subsequent rental you may identify yourself at the terminal with the use of this card – apply it in order to log in. If you want to log in using the card only, without entering the PIN – uncheck the option “At every rental and return please ask for my PIN for security reasons ” on your account on the portal www.tyskirower.pl in the “Password” tab.

How to generate a new PIN code?

In order to generate a new PIN code to your account, you should visit www.tyskirower.pl website. Then, before logging in, select the “I forgot my PIN” option. The new PIN code will be sent to the phone number, that is assigned to your account.

I have two accounts for the same phone number on different systems. How can I log in?

If you use multiple accounts registered to the same phone number, the account is always selected based on the PIN code you entered. If the PIN code for accounts is the same, you will be logged in to the oldest account. Generating a new PIN code will generate a new PIN code also for the oldest account. In order to change the PIN number for a selected other account, we encourage you to contact the 24-hour Call Center or send a request using the contact form.
