Meets Popular Demand for All Day Access to Environmentally-Friendly Transportation Alternative; Opens Waitlist for People Wanting Birds Delivered Right to Their Doorstep
Venice, Calif. (October 4, 2018) – Bird, the leader in Ridershare 2.0, today introduced Bird Delivery, a new offering that makes Bird’s low-cost, environmentally-friendly transportation option even more accessible to individuals.
In response to demand for convenient, all day access to Bird, Bird Delivery allows riders to request and use a Bird as they get around town. With Bird Delivery, a rider can request a Bird to be delivered to their home or business by 8am. Bird Delivery riders can then use it throughout the day to guarantee that they have an easy, affordable way to move around their city or campus without getting into a car, being stuck in traffic and adding carbon emissions to the atmosphere. Individuals interested in Bird Delivery can visit www.delivery.bird.co to join the waitlist and secure priority placement. Pricing, availability and the selection of cities to pilot Bird Delivery will be announced shortly.
“Bird was created to provide an equitable, convenient and reliable alternative to short car trips. Since launching, we are continually inspired by riders who opt for Bird rides over traveling by car, and share in the pain of riders when they express frustration about not having consistent and reliable access to Bird,” said Travis VanderZanden, Bird founder and CEO. “With Bird Delivery, we are aiming to address this pain point by guaranteeing they have access to a Bird when and where they need it and throughout the day.”
