#borntomove - You might have seen them around Munich the last couple of days: the TIER e-scooter, an automised scooter that you can rent via an app in a similar way as, for example, the DB bicycles. In Munich the e-scooter is made possible by MVG in corporation with the company called TIER. Riding such a scooter on the public roads has only been allowed since a couple of weeks, but already a big success in Munich. The 400 available scooters were already rented five times each..on only one day. 


According to an article in the interest for this two wheeled form of transportion in the first few weeks has been overwhelming. Only one day after launching it was the number one downloaded app in Germany - the many e-scooters spotted by the Expat in the City team last weekend certainly confirms this statement!


Currently there are 400 e-scooters active in Munich, and MVG is planning to up this number to 1500 soon. 


Curious to learn how you can get hold of one so that you won’t have to walk home from the U-bahn? 


More info about TIER can be found here.
