A new, practical and totally complementary transportation method is available to Thalys passengers looking for comfort and flexibility.


Mobile automobile


DriveNow is the ideal solution for people who are addicted to cars and for those looking to be mobile in the city at all times. The service is provided by BMW, Mini and Sixt. You can take the first car you find parked near you and leave it wherever you want within the city limits. And you don't get just any old car; you get a BMW or a Mini! You can even go one-way between Düsseldorf and Cologne and leave the car in the other city. The DriveNow application tells you where there are vehicles nearby (there are 250 on the road in Düsseldorf and 350 in Cologne). They can be reserved 15 minutes ahead of time.

Reinventing transport


DriveNow is complementary to local and international transport networks. It is reinventing car use and has taken on the main constraints of the city. In cities in which the service is already available (Munich, Berlin, and Düsseldorf, Cologne and San Francisco), fleet vehicles can be parked anywhere without paying for parking.

Insurance, inspection and fuel are also paid by DriveNow and covered by the rental cost of about 31 eurocents a minute. Shared vehicles are an alternative to personal cars and a great mobility solution during the week and for weekend city trips.

Coralie, 31 JOURNALIST BY DAY

I'm a translator and editor for several publications and I love the hidden side of the city, its secret gardens, its discrete gourmet restaurants and its new, high-design spots. Outings with my friends end late at night. My little extra: a dynamic, fun and really trendy Cologne!
