Lime: rent bikes via App
With Lime you can rent bicycles and pedelecs. Electronically powered scooters are not available in Germany. Its easy to use: download and register app, search for scooters and pedelecs nearby, and unlock them using QR code. You are ready to go.
In Germany, the app can only be used in Berlin and Frankfurt so far. Other European cities include Vienna, Paris, Brussels, Stockholm and Madrid. However, it can be assumed that significantly more cities will be added over time.
