meinRad bike sharing app for Mainz Mobility

On behalf of the Mainzer Mobilität insertEFFECT develops a bikesharing app to increase the acceptance of the bike rental system in Mainz and Wiesbaden. All functions from registration to the locking system are combined in a user-oriented way in a single app. 

Requirements and objectives

Download the app, register and start cycling - that's MVG's claim for the new meinRad bikesharing app. Users in the participating cities of Mainz and Wiesbaden will be offered a bike rental system that is managed entirely via the meinRad app. Fast, simple registration and high-quality bikes are intended to make the offer attractive to non-cyclists as well and increase the willingness to use the bikesharing system. At the same time, the outdated card and terminal-based bike rental system of the Mainzer Mobilität ersetzt werden.


The development of the meinRad bikesharing app is based on a close collaboration between insertEFFECT and the Mainzer Mobilität. In addition to comprehensive consulting and the implementation of strategy workshops with MVG, our agile working method based on Scrum forms the core of our methodology. The development of the bikesharing app takes place in two-week sprints with associated review dates. Our flexible and transparent way of working ensures that the final product meets all the customer's requirements and offers maximum added value to the users of the bikesharing app.


The meinRad app for iOS and Android developed by insertEFFECT offers a user-oriented platform for renting and returning bicycles in Mainz, Wiesbaden, Ingelheim and Budenheim. After successful registration and verification, more than 1200 rental bikes can be rented, temporarily parked and returned directly via the app. Opening and closing is also done directly via the app using the Bluetooth interface. In the map overview, users can see all 200 stations at a glance, as well as the number of available bikes and free parking spaces in each case. User-oriented additional functions such as monthly invoicing and uncomplicated damage reporting directly via the app also reduce the administrative effort of the Mainzer Mobilität.
