E-Scooter 

Meanwhile you can see them on every street corner: the colorful e-scooters from TIER and Lime. Around 600 of them are spread across the city, especially at busy traffic junctions. For example at the main railway stations in Mönchengladbach and Rheydt, at the Bismarckplatz and the city centre. You can find out where exactly by looking at the location of the respective app. Registration, renting and payment are also handled through these.

By the way: special traffic rules apply to e-scooters, e.g. driving on pavements and in pedestrian zones is not permitted. There is no obligation to wear a helmet, but it is strongly recommended. You can find out more about the traffic rules for e-scooters on the ADAC’s website.
