Access to affordable e-scooters plays a key role in keeping essential workers mobile during the pandemic and promoting sustainable, socially distant alternatives to cars.
That’s why Bird has teamed up with Revolut, Europe’s innovative financial super app, to offer scooter riders throughout the continent the opportunity to take up to 40% off every ride. There are no codes to enter or limits on the number of qualifying trips. Simply add your Revolut card as your primary payment option in the Bird app and start saving.
“We’re proud to partner with Revolut, bringing together two of Europe’s most mission-driven startups in a way that will have a direct, beneficial impact on communities,” said Patrick Studener, VP and Head of Bird EMEA. “Helping more people get out of cars and onto environmentally friendly modes of transport is crucial for our planet, especially as the global pandemic continues to highlight the importance of socially-distant mobility.”
The discount applies to Revolut members at every tier, from 20% off for all card holders to 30% off for Premium card holders and 40% for Metal card holders. Once added as the primary payment option in your Bird app, cashback discounts will automatically be paid to your Revolut account for every ride you take. The program runs until March 27, 2021, giving riders 5 months to switch to micromobility and save.
Our partnership with Revolut is the latest in a series of recent initiatives designed to make it easier and more affordable for riders to get onto electric scooters. Earlier this year, Bird launched our industry-first Warm Up Mode and Quick Start Mode features to help make scooter riding both more comfortable and more efficient. We also recently announced the rollout of our Bird Ride Pass and expanded Community Pricing Program, offering new ways to help reduce transportation costs.
