Riders are reminded of safe riding & parking expectations through banner & in-app notifications in the Bird app.
Safety has been Bird’s top priority since day one. Bird has built several features in app to address safety, including Helmet Selfie, Warm-Up Mode, as well as in-app safety tutorials, and a safety video available on our blog and website. Additionally, each city will also have an Account Manager who can work closely with your team to address any safety concerns if they arise. Your dedicated account manager will also be able to walk you through all new safety features, and update you as we release new ones as well .
Renting a Bird will cost the rider a $1 unlock fee + a per minute fee. Billing is all done through the Bird app with a credit or debit card. Bird has discounted pricing programs available for frontline workers, active duty and retired military personnel, low-income, veterans, senior citizens and select community and non-profit groups. Learn more about eligibility requirements here and here.
Bird scooters go up to 15mph, which aligns with the speed of the casual biker. There is also the ability to create slow speed zones and adjust the speed. “Warm-up mode” is available for all riders which will automatically soften a Bird scooter’s acceleration, allowing riders to slowly work their way up to full speed.
Bird follows a dockless model, which means riders can park wherever they would like within the operating area. The bird app further educates riders where and how to park: at a bike rack when available, not blocking the right-of-way, sidewalks, ADA ramps, or driveways. At the end of each Bird ride, riders will be promoted to take a picture of the parked scooter as proof.
