The 30-minute rule
When you rent a bike, the first 30 minutes are always free, no matter how many times you rent a day. The second half hour cost you 10 SEK and the third 20 SEK. The fourth half hour and longer thereafter costs you 40 SEK for every started half hour.
The 3-day card is usually suitable for most visitors. The card costs 25 SEK and is purchased at any of the rental stations using a debit or credit card. Apart from the 25 SEK there will be a deposit of 140 SEK on your card and you’ll be charged in case you exceed the 30-minute rule. In other words, if you keep within the rule you’ll only pay 25 SEK, in total.
To purchase a 3-day ticket or activate the included ticket bundled with your Göteborg City Card you need a MasterCard or VISA with chip and PIN-code.
