Stella Sharing is a sharing service offered by the Stuttgarter Stadtwerke in cooperation with BW-Bank for the temporary rental of electric scooters. So you don't have to buy an electric scooter to be climate-neutral in the city of Stuttgart.
The billing is accurate to the minute, the price in the so-called home area is 0.24€ per minute, there is no fixed basic fee. The daily flat rate amounts to 23 euro, thus one can borrow the electric scooter for a whole day (conditions 2019).
The sharing offer applies to the so-called home area, which includes Stuttgart city centre as well as the districts of Botnang, Degerloch, Feuerbach, Sillenbuch, Hohenheim, Vahingen and parts of Bad Cannstatt. In this area, the blue E-scooters in retro design can be rented and parked according to the free-floating principle. This means that there are no fixed stations for the Stella electric scooters and you can park the rental scooter wherever you want. The process is keyless via the Stella Smartphone App.
New registrants pay a one-time registration fee of 19 euros, which includes 15 free minutes.
The Stella E-Scooters are up to 50 km/h fast and can be driven with a class 3/B driving licence. Each scooter is equipped with two helmets and hygiene hoods.
The scooters are available during summer season. The 2019 season starts on 1 April with a doubling of the fleet to 200 Stella E-scooters. The E-scooters will, it is said, be charged exclusively with green electricity from the Stuttgart municipal utility.
