* A better solution for going west would be the ramp ''Rheine-Nord''. There's a bus stop directly next to the ramp. Ask at the bus station which bus is going towards ''Rheine Nord'' or direction ''Spelle''. This ramp is only good for hitchhiking towards the [[Netherlands]] or onto the [[A31 (Germany)|A31]], but forget it for hitching eastwards. There's quite a lot of space for you to stand for direction [[Netherlands]], even a traffic light with a button to push so you can force cars that are going onto the highway to stop. The ramp in the other direction is bad, no hard shoulder to stand on, and fast traffic.
===South-West towards [[Neuenkirchen]], [[Ochtrup]]===
* If hitchhiking through the countryside (it's worth it!), and your starting point might be the train station in '''Rheine''', use this way to get out in direction south-west: Walk down under the bridge on the left if you leave the station. You'll recognize a pub with a guitar outside and a recordstore on the right. Walk along this street (''Bahnhofstrasse'') until the next traffic lights, there turn right. Go uphill for some 300m, along a service station, until you cross with the ''Neuenkirchener Strasse''. On the right, you'll recognize another service station, called ''Pludra''. Here now turn left and follow the whole ''Neuenkirchener Strasse'' for some 800-900m. At some point, you'll find a JET service station. Just behind there are some big traffic lights, and 10m behind the lights you'll find a big bus bay for starting your hitchhiking trip. Good spot with much traffic that's passing by slowly. From the train station until this spot, you might walk some 10 minutes.
