Less traffic. Less carbon. Together.
Bird partners with cities across the globe to develop programs that maximize the positive impact of micromobility.
Prioritizing safety, first.
- Starting with less cars on the road
Cars are one of the biggest safety hazards today. By replacing car trips with convenient options, like scooters, we can make cities safer and reduce pollution for everyone.
- Making safe rides more fun
The Bird app encourages—and incentivizes—responsible riding. We even give out rewards to riders who park in designated areas, away from public pathways.
- Tailoring our app to your city
To help each city meet their unique goals, we work to deliver an app experience that includes localized education, designated no-ride zones, and more.
“Bird and Kent County Council have a close and healthy working relationship delivering e-scooters in the City of Canterbury with the shared vision of reducing car dependency to help improve air quality. Bird works hard to build on their years of experience in the industry to come up with solutions to delivery a successful e-scooter rental model with the environment and the customer at the heart of their delivery.”
Senior Transport Planner, Kent County Council
Vehicles made to last
Our highest-performing scooters can now last over 18 months on the road.
1,500 pounds of carbon avoided
Every Bird on the road results in about 1,500 pounds of avoided carbon emissions each year.
Listening to the community.
Community Mode in the Bird app makes it easy for anyone to submit complaints directly to our team, so we can all work together to keep our streets safe and address any issues that arise right away. To access Community Mode, simply tap the yield icon in the Bird app.

Bird Access offers 5 free rides a day to low-income residents for $5 a month (prices may vary by city and program). Riders can also pay with cash and unlock vehicles via SMS. Learn more about eligibility requirements or complete the form below.
Measuring the impact of micromobility
Our dashboards provide a customized view of Bird data, specific to each city’s goals. In-depth APIs allow cities to analyze trends and measure the impact of micromobility—all while identifying issues and improving infrastructure within communities.
