Facilitating the use of public transport for people with mobility impairments.


Since June 2018, public transport operator Potsdam (ViP) has been allowing passengers with mobility impairments to take their e-scooters with them on its regular buses. Condition for this :

  • The user of the e-scooter must hold a severely handicapped pass with the mark “G” (handicapped)
  • The user must be able to get on and off the bus independently and to park the e-scooter in the bus properly and safely (ViP offers mobility training for this purpose).
