UniBike: University bicycle rental system

The UniBike university bicycle rental system, established by the University of Debrecen is a public bicycle rental system. It is not an average bike rental but a new way of public transport with the aim of helping university citizens’ (students, lecturers and employees) with comfortable and quick travel among the university campuses.

The UniBike rental system operated by the University Students’ Union cooperates with Debrecen Reformed Theological University so both universities’ students can hire a bike. Within the university bicycle rental system a total of 90 bikes will be available at 7 rental stations (listed on the website) and at 152 docking stations for cardholders.

It is necessary to have ACTIVATED university card (UniPass or DEKa) for hiring a bike and to have at least one PURCHASE in the payment system with it.


Cards produced earlier than 1 January, 2019 can be used in the UniBike system only if a purchase has already happened to the card. If the cardholder does not intend to use the payment system it is necessary to write the application, needed for hiring a bike to his / her card. Its possibility is ensured for every cardholder in the office (Egyetem square 1.) of the Student Service Center (in Hungarian HAK).

How to hire a bike?

Bikes are available daily between 7:00-21:00. Using a UniPass card only one bicycle can be rented at the same time.
