As a nationwide service from Deutsche Bahn, Call a Bike is one of the largest and most successful bikesharing systems in Germany. You can enjoy flexible and comfortable two-wheeled mobility whenever you need it thanks to our fleet of over 13,000 bikes. They are available for hire in 80 towns and cities across Germany. Whether you're going to work, making plans for your leisure time or heading to a party, Call a Bike is always there for you.
Our new bikes have been bringing two-wheeled freedom to your streets since our update on 30 November 2021. The new world of Call a Bike has so much to offer – more fun, a simpler hiring process, a new lock and a whole lot more besides.
Do you have any more questions?
Download our Call a Bike app to your smartphone and follow our registration guide. The entire process only takes a moment. Authentication requires just a few items of information such as your phone number.
Call a Bike makes things easy: you can pay by credit card.
Just use the Call a Bike app to report any damage to your bike. Go to the menu at the bottom of the screen and tap "Damage". Enter the number of the damaged or defective bike – it only takes a second. Send us your location so that we can dispatch our service team quickly. Thanks for the help!
Close the lock on the rear wheel of the bicycle by pushing the red bolt down. Our system then ends your journey automatically. We charge a flex fee of EUR 1 if you leave your bike somewhere other than a station.
Finding your nearest station is easier if you let the Call a Bike app track your location. The app's map will then be able to show you the nearest station so you can pick up a bike or return one without having to pay a flex fee.
