More bike racks for the city
Every year, we add parking facilities for several hundreds of bicycles in Helsinki. We also replace old bike racks with safer versions that allow bicycles to be secured by their frame.
When parking your bicycle downtown, we recommend using bike racks. If no public bike racks are available nearby, make sure to park your bicycle so as not to inconvenience others. A good rule of thumb is that you should stop and park on the side of the street, with your bicycle aligned in the direction of traffic.
(Instructions for reading the map: To see a bike rack’s details, click on or hover over the bike rack. If you see the word ‘kaariteline’ in the bike rack’s details, it means a type of bike rack that allows you to secure your bicycle by its frame. These additional details on bike racks are necessary information to maintenance staff. For Helsinki residents, the map mainly shows the locations of bike racks.)
Park your bicycle at a station
Park-and-Ride facilities are available for bicycles near public transport stations. Bicycle parking is free of charge at Park-and-Ride facilities. Tip! In Kalasatama, you can also find a locked Park-and-Ride facility that you can access with your Helsinki Region Transport (HSL) card.
Helsinki City Transport (HKL) is responsible for the operation and maintenance of Park-and-Ride facilities in Helsinki, as well as for bicycle parking at metro and train stations. Read more about Park-and-Ride facilities for bicycles and changes on the HKL website
