ČD Bike offers affordable bike rentals at train stations across the Czech Republic

On Saturday, April 1, Czech Railways will launch a new season of ČD Bike rental shops, providing bicycles for rent directly at train stations at the same prices as last year. In addition to bicycles, electric bikes and scooters, including accessories, will also be available. The number of rental shops open year-round has also increased.

According to the national transport company’s press release, seasonal rental shops will be open from April 1 to October 31 in 23 stations throughout the Czech Republic. The number of rental shops open year-round has increased from twelve to eighteen.

“This year, 68 rental shops will be in operation at train stations in attractive tourist areas. The service is suitable for anyone who wants to combine the benefits of environmentally friendly railway transport with the possibility of renting a bike at the station and cycling on picturesque cycle paths through nature and around several landmarks,” said Jana Rotreklová, ČD Bike Project Manager.

The essential rental price list is unchanged from last year. It is also uniform across all rental shops. A full-day bicycle or scooter rental will cost CZK 230. An electric bike for the whole day will cost CZK 390. Those interested will pay CZK 190 for a half-day rental, i.e., a maximum of 6 hours.

Holders of In Cards or train tickets have an even more advantageous price. One-day bike or scooter rental will cost CZK 190, and an electric bike will cost CZK 340. A half-day bike rental will cost CZK 160. Passengers who collect points in the ČD Points loyalty program will pay 100 points for a full-day rental.

Children’s bikes are also available for CZK 130 per day, child bike seats for CZK 50 per day, or a bike trailer for CZK 130. An adult helmet costs CZK 30, and children receive a free helmet with the bike. A mobile phone holder costs CZK 20.

ČD Bike will expand the number of rental shops open year-round to eighteen this year. In contrast, as last year, nine branches will operate on a pre-order basis.

“Due to reconstruction, the branch in Světlá nad Sázavou will be closed this year, while those interested in renting a bike in the spa town of Jeseník will be pleased to learn of the improvement. The operational mode at this branch will change from mid-May, and bikes will no longer need to be ordered in advance.”
