Be Free From Traffic & Pollution: The Last-Mile Solution
BE FREE FROM TRAFFIC & POLLUTION: THE LAST-MILE SOLUTION
Bird is a last-mile electric scooter sharing company dedicated to bringing low-cost, environmentally friendly transport solutions to communities across the world. In our first year operating, we saw more than 10 million rides, demonstrating the huge opportunity to replace car trips, reduce congestion and pollution, and improve access for all.
Birds are distributed around cities in high-demand areas, and unlocked through an app, making Bird rides as easy to access as a ride-hailing vehicle but available at a substantially lower cost. Our e-scooters are currently available in 100 cities, providing riders with a clean, convenient, affordable, car-free alternative to getting around. Bird is committed to partnering with the cities where we operate.
We work with local governments and transit agencies to help support last-mile connectivity and improve access to transit. Through our One Bird program, we provide discounted rides to low-income customers, as well as options for unlocking rides without the use of a smartphone. And through our sustainability initiatives, we are constantly on the lookout for ways to further green our operations.
In our first year, we saw more than 10 million rides--demonstrating the huge latent demand for more urban transport options. While we started in the US, we are expanding globally, most recently launching in Mexico City. We see Bird becoming a fundamental piece of the transport system in cities around the world, replacing car trips, reducing congestion and pollution, improving connectivity to transit, and improving access to safe, affordable, low-carbon transportation for all citizens.
By making shared, environmentally-friendly urban transportation fun, affordable, and easily-accessible, Bird is helping achieve SDG 11, making cities more inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable.
