Fair parking - better with consideration!

When you park your bike, please also think about people on foot who may not be as fit as you. Be considerate of other road users by observing these points.

If possible, always return your Call a Bike to a station. Only at stations is the return free of charge. Check the app to make sure you are parked at a station.

Proper parking

  • Never park bikes in front of public access points, e.g. traffic lights, stairs, exits, in front of vending machines and especially not on escape routes or guide rails for the blind.

  • Always leave enough space for wheelchairs and baby carriages on footpaths. It is better to leave your bike in a parking space on the street. This is permitted and does not disturb pedestrians.

  • Sight impaired people often use a cane to find their way along the walls of houses. Therefore, please do not park your bike against a wall.

If you have found a Call a Bike that is in the way, move it or report it to Thank you for your help!
