Ostrowski Rower Miejski
How does it work?
The Ostrowski Rower Miejski System is a kind of alternative means of transport that allows You to get around our city. It is a good complement to public transport in Ostrów Wlkp. Cyclists can enjoy 2 stations and 20 bikes.
Of course, however common sense is key in each such situation. Do not leave the bike in remote places or “risky” ones and secure it with a belt or with a digital lock, connecting it to a fixed, solid element and you may be sure nothing will happen to it. Be sure that no other person will be able to use your bike-secured for a moment, during a ride, with a digital lock-or rent it via mobile application or QR code, since the bike will be visible in the system as rented.
The login sites, registration site and “My account” are coded via SSL, which is visible through the link upon entering each of these sites. Websites which launch Nextbike API application are additionally encoded but they function in the iframe mode thus it is not visible within the address tab. Moreover, encoding of the entire service is switched on and set as default. We thus guarantee that the use of our website is 100% safe at each stage.
