Bird Rides LLC

Bird was founded with a mission to partner with cities to help get people out of cars and make communities safer and more livable. Micro-mobility has demonstrated that people will make environmentally friendly choices when they have greater options for safe, affordable and convenient travel. A seat at the NABSA Board is an important opportunity for Bird to expand on the foundation established by the bike-share industry to continue pushing for best practices and infrastructure changes that will support the transportation of the future. We are also eager to continue working with cities to increase transportation alternatives to the car. In cities such as Portland, data from its pilot program demonstrated that bike-share use increased as shared e-scooters were introduced, demonstrating the potential for partnership and collaboration. Bird is eager to share its experience and learn from industry leaders around shared core values — such as safety and equity — that affect our communities and riders.
