Planes don't have reverse gear any more than they have forward gears. However, the forward thrust of the engines can be deflected to provide reverse thrust, typically used during landing. The reverse thrust is not used for manoeuvring so planes are generally pushed backwards until they are positioned to be able to moved forward.

There have been some prototypes of a driving wheel for use on airliners. The motor is electrically powered and allows all main engines to be shut down while the plane is moving around an airport. Being electric, the motor can run backwards as easily as forward so this technology does indeed provide a reverse gear. Although this technology has been demonstrated, at the time of writing there are no published plans to go into production.
