Lending, prices and return

In Berlin, the bikes can be found especially in the districts of Mitte, Kreuzberg and Prenzlauer Berg. If a suitable Wheels Bike is found in the vicinity, users can unlock it by scanning the QR code. A fee of one euro is charged for unlocking, after which each minute costs 20 cents. The e-bikes can be driven within the entire S-Bahn ring and parked again. The use of the sidewalks is prohibited - Wheels riders must ride on the street. One battery charge is enough for about 45 kilometers.
