Vilamoura Public Bikes


Vilamoura Public Bikes


Vilamoura has both a mild climate and a flat landscape so it is the ideal place to use bicycles for travelling around.
We have set up the Vilamoura Public Bikes system for you - with shared use bicycles in Vilamoura that you may use throughout the whole Vilamoura area to go to work, do some shopping, simply visit any cultural or tourist attraction, or tour around on two wheels in a healthy, active lifestyle.
These bicycles, designed exclusively for Vilamoura, are manufactured using materials and craftsmanship of the highest quality and safety standards. They were specifically made for easy of handling and convenience.
Providing you are an Inframoura customer, you qualify to join the Vilamoura Public Bikes system in order to benefit from the network of 43 stations that is already in place, with a total of 260 bicycles. Each station includes attachment points to park bicycles, and individual posts to read user cards.
The network covers the whole of Vilamoura, both its business/tourist and residential areas, and the system is designed to allow users to rent bicycles and return them to any station, therefore avoiding the need to go to a central point to collect or return them.
The system automatically carries out one-to-one transfer between user cards and the Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) of each bicycle. In this way, the system can control usage of the cards as regards bicycles rented and also the routes taken.


How does one join?
You only have to acquire a personal card, the first one being free of charge.
Visit the Inframoura office personally or via this company's website. If you apply via the internet, you may wait for your card to arrive by post office delivery.


Pricing
To make the cards effective, users need to charge them with funds, €20 for a month, €25 for a quarter or €35 for a year.
Once the cards are effective for either of the selected periods, members may use bicycles for an unlimited number of 45-minute periods.
When users make their cards effective they are also required to leave minimum deposits of €5.00 for a month or a quarterly period or €10.00 for a yearly one before using the system. When bicycles are used beyond any 45-minute period, the applicable tariff rate will be deducted from such a deposit. As soon as deposit amounts are depleted, customers are notified and required to make new deposits to allow them to continue using the system.
For monthly or quarterly cards, €1.00 will be charged for the first half hour over and above the agreed 45-minute periods. Any second and following half hour periods will be charged at the rate of €1.50.
For yearly cards, €0.75 will be charged for the first half hour over and above the agreed 45-minute periods. Any second and following half hour periods will be charged at the rate of €1.50. If the total deposit amount is not used, customers can obtain reimbursement at the end of the quarterly or yearly periods, on request.
