As of spring 2020, residents are able to use their Monheim Pass or the accompanying app to access the services the town offers. The Monheim Pass can in the future also be used to make cashless payments.
The new card for citizens enables all Monheim residents to take advantage of numerous services offered by the city and its associated companies, such as MEGA (Monheim's electricity and gas supplier), Mona Mare (a swimming and sauna complex), the Kulturwerke organization that organizes cultural events, and BSM (the town's public transport provider). This will go hand in hand with the introduction of a digital citizen's account.
Besides numerous starter functions and a lot more potential for expanding the way it can be used, the pass also includes an electronic bus and train ticket for the A1 price level (Langenfeld/Monheim). The city is one of the first in Germany that has introduced free local public transport.
In addition to the Monheim Pass, which is the size and shape of a credit card, there is also a smartphone app. This way, users will be able to use public transport in Monheim am Rhein and Langenfeld free of charge with a digital ticket on their smart phone.
Future functions of the app include a waste collection calendar and the possibility to rent the new City Bikes.
