Tier E-Scooter

The Berlin-based company Tier rents out e-scooters according to the sharing principle.

The Berlin startup Tier has been offering electric scooters for sharing since June 2019. The startup is active in ten countries. More recently, the company has added bike sharing to their portfolio as well.


Tier's electric scooters can only be rented after downloading the provider's free app. Users must register with their personal data and select a means of payment. Payment is possible with all major credit cards and Paypal. The minimum age for borrowing an e-scooter from Tier is 18 years.

Pricing and Rental Process

You can check for the locations of avalaible scooters via the Tier app. After unlocking a scooter via scan or by pushing a button, instructions are then given via the app and the ride can begin. After reaching the desired destination, the electric scooter is locked again via a button. The price for a ride on the Tier-branded e-scooter is made up of a fixed fee for activation and a price per minute. In Berlin, activating a scooter costs one euro, after which the ride time is billed by the minute.

Area of Use and Return

Tier's e-scooters may be driven and parked anywhere within the area defined by Tier. The parking space for the scooter must be public and accessible to all. The rental process is terminated via the app.

Important Note: No Electric Scooters on Sidewalks

It is forbidden to drive electric scooters on sidewalks and in pedestrian zones. Violations may result in a fine. Do not park your scooter in the middle of sidewalks or in driveways. Scooters may not be parked on pavements or in driveways, but must be parked in public or collective parking spaces.
