1) Station-bound vehicles in the Flinkster network that can be booked by end customers in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Italy.

The number of Call a Bike and Flinkster users has grown to a total of about 1.4 million customers. With the launch of LIDL-BIKE in Berlin in March and FordPass Bike in Cologne and Düsseldorf in October, the number of bicycles in the Call a Bike family has increased significantly. The Flinkster network has also expanded and is available at 2,500 stations in about 400 towns and cities. In Marburg, Wiesbaden and Rüsselsheim, Call a Bike and the service known as Konrad in Kassel have been terminated. Previously, the respective student representative bodies (AStA) did not extend the cooperation agreements with DB Connect.

Citroën Multicity has withdrawn from car sharing in Germany. As a partner of the Flinkster network in Berlin, Multicity provided 330 vehicles, including 230 with an electric drive. The number of e-vehicles in the network has dropped as a result.
