About us

In 2016, the city of Cracow decided to completely rebuild the oldest city bike network in Poland and grant a long-term concession to manage the system. In the First, pilot part of bicycles will be launched on the city streets in autumn 2016. More than 1500 bikes and 162 stations throughout the city will be available for residents and tourists in spring.


The Wavelo system will be financed outside the budget of Cracow. Operating costs are covered by users’ fees, operator’s own funds and sponsorship agreements. 


The profits generated will be allocated for further system development. Wavelo bikes will be maintained by BikeU, the Polish operator of unmanned city rental companies.

Wavelo for companies

Wavelo is not only stations and bikes, it is also an interesting and original way to promote business.
