Wheesy – mobility by NEW
In order to let everyone experience the fun of “electric driving” Wheesy provides various types of vehicles, ranging from electric cars to electric scooters. The vehicles can be hired from the mobility hub at any time of the day or night.
The mobility hub is the local interface between private and public local transport (bus and train services). That’s why the first Wheesy mobility hub is located at Mönchengladbach central station (rear exit / Heinrich-Sturm-Straße). Joined-up mobility is ensured by two Smart EQ forfours and several electric scooters that are available around the clock.
Further mobility hubs will follow at the railway stations in Rheydt, Viersen and Erkelenz.
Carsharing and hire cars
Apart from the improvement in city centre accessibility that is provided by the Santander nextbike hire bikes, other initiatives in the city also promote cycling. That’s why old-fashioned cycle parking facilities such as front-wheel parking bays which don’t provide stable parking and leave the bike exposed to the risk of theft are being replaced.
If you would like to use a Santander nextbike you just need to register by using the nextbike app or by going online at www.nextbike.de. The app is available from the Google Play Store or iTunes. Basic hire bike charges are 1 euro for 30 minutes subject to a maximum of 9 euros per day. There’s also a very competitive annual rate of 48 euros for frequent riders: the first half hour is then always free. Registration for the system as well as the app itself are free. Once you’ve registered, you can use the nextbike bike hire system in any city where it is available.
