The electric scooter rental service in the Olympic Park is supported by the Munich Employment and Qualification Programme (MBQ) and follows on from the successful "electric scooter rental in Hellabrunn Zoo" pilot project. The Department of Labour and Economic Affairs is implementing the project with the social enterprise Anderwerk GmbH in close coordination with Olympiapark München GmbH and the municipal advisory council for people with disabilities.
