What is Valenbisi?

Valenbisi is the public bicycle rental service located in Valencia. By signing up and paying the subscription, we can easily access a bike at any of its many points in the city. We can pick up and drop off the bikes at different locations, which is convenient to reach our destination. This service has been available since 2010 and is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The City Council launched Valenbisi to provide a fast and non-polluting transport option for Valencians.

How does it work?

Sign up and rent a bike: Create an account on the website or mobile app and choose the subscription that best suits your needs, whether short or long term.

Check and select your Valenbisi: Before taking a bike, check reviews from previous users on the app or at the station itself. Make sure you check the fit of the saddle, the condition of the pedals and basket, the functioning of the bell, brakes, lights and the condition of the frame and tyres.

Take your Valenbisi: In the mobile app, select "rent a Valenbisi" and choose your bike. You have 60 seconds to unlock the selected bike.

Can't find a Valenbisi at the station? You can view a list of nearby stations with addresses and the number of bikes available at each one through Miivo, along with all other transport options or on the official Valenbisi app.

To return a Valenbisi bike, you must first choose one of the 276 empty docking stations available at any of the stations. To make sure that the return is done correctly, you must lift the bike by the saddle and place it in the anchor all the way. If it has been returned correctly, you will hear a double beep. If you don't hear it, check that the bike is correctly positioned and verify that the return has been made correctly via the mobile app. It is important to return the bike properly, otherwise you will be charged for the time of use. If you need help, you can call Valenbisi customer service on 900 900 722.
