- You will find more than 80 rental points directly at the station or a maximum of 300 metres from the station.
Collecting your rental bike

- When renting at the station, please go to the ticket or luggage counter first. You can then pick up your bike at the luggage counter using the rental contract.
Giving back the rental bike.
- You can give back bikes and e-bikes at the same rental point and usually at an alternative one as well.
