How it works


Rent a bike

Rent a bike easily via app: scan the QR-code or enter the bike number. The frame lock opens automatically. You can also rent bikes by calling our hotline: +49 (0) 421 367 136 71.

You can use a single account to rent up to four bikes at once.


Park the bike

You can park your bike without stopping the rental. Activate the park mode in your app and close the lock afterwards. Simply deactivate it again to continue your ride. The lock opens automatically. Therefore do not deactivate the park mode from afar.

Return your bike at any public street or junction within the blue or pink flex zone or at an official station. Close the lock by pressing down the lever. Refresh your app to make sure the rental has been stopped. Check the map for information about the flex zone areas and check Prices for information about return fees.
