How to activate the Bicing card

Barcelona is a city that enjoys endless transport options and a communications network that connects the different parts of the city in a fast and efficient way.

By making use of the public transport network and other alternatives that allow mobility without generating emissions, we contribute to caring for the environment and achieving a cleaner and more sustainable city.

In this regard, one of the most outstanding and comfortable options available in the city of Barcelona is Bicing.

What is Bicing?

Bicing is an urban transport method based on the shared use of the mechanical and electric bicycle. A simple, practical and sustainable service that you can use on your trips around the city. To go where you want and when you want, without smoke or noise.

Thanks to the wide network of stations where bikes can be picked up and parked, comfort is assured. In addition, thanks to the fact that all the apartments and buildings of Pisos estudiantes Barcelona are located in premium areas of the city, you will always find a Bicing station near you to move wherever you need to.

Another of its great advantages is undoubtedly its reduced cost, since for only € 35 or € 50 per year depending on occasional or intensive use, you can enjoy the service.

How to start using the service?

To sign up for the service, you can choose whether to do it online or in person:

  • Online registration: Download the Smou app, register and access the User Area. Once inside, go to the "Services" section, click "activate" Bicing, choose your rate, enter your data and follow the steps indicated to make the online payment. In approximately 10 days you will receive the welcome pack to the service that includes your subscriber card at your home address. Once you have the card, access the Smou user area via the web again and activate it in the "Activate card" section within Bicing in the "services" section.
  • Registration in person: The Citizen Service Point (c. Calabria, 66) will only carry out procedures in person with a prior appointment from Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. You can reserve the day and time by calling 93 887 50 34 and choosing the "Prior Appointment" option. Once you have the card, access the Smou user area via the web again and activate it in the "My Bicing card" section within Bicing in the "services" section.

From Pisos estudiantes Barcelona we want to take the opportunity to recommend the online registration process, which guarantees a safer procedure, as well as remember that due to the current situation, the reception times of the Bicing card may be affected.
