In Stuttgart's inner city districts “RegioRadStuttgart” now offers a clever and everyday alternative for children's transport, grocery shopping and family outings. Ten “LastenRegioRäder“ (cargo bikes with electrical support) enable transports up to a weight of 45 kilograms.

The loading area in front of the handlebar is large enough to transport beverage crates and other larger goods. Alternatively, two children between the ages of two and seven can sit on its bench seats with belts.

Unlike the other 1,100 RegioRäder and RegioPedelecs, the ten new LastenRegioRäder have fixed rental stations in the north, west, east, south and central districts of the city centre. This is where the electric cargo bikes have to be returned after use and reloaded fully automatically. This makes the offer more reliable for all customers. Of course, the LastenRegioRäder can also be reserved up to 45 minutes in advance.

The basic rate for using the LastenRegioRäder is 14 cent/minute (the polygoCard rate is 12 cent/minute, max. 5 euros/hour). The daily rate is 25 euros (18 euros in the polygoCard tariff). Reservations are free of charge; if a reservation is not used, a fee of 5 euros will be charged.

The ten LastenRegioRäder are available at these RegioRadStuttgart locations:

  • Rathaus
  • Tübinger Straße
  • Universität
  • Bebelstraße
  • Feuersee
  • Marienplatz
  • Böheimstraße
  • Wagenburgstraße
