Los-Angeles based scooter company Bird is currently active in more than 450 cities across the country, including Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, and Springfield.
Scooters are expected to provide an “affordable, low-impact mobility option for residents and visitors,” and may provide a small economic boost to downtown and nearby business districts, as well as the city’s bike paths, according to city documents.
Electric scooters have grown in popularity across the region and country. Dayton Cincinnati and Columbus are among Ohio cities that allow shared mobility devices like e-scooters. Others, like Beavercreek, Centerville and Oakwood have banned them, citing “visual clutter” and safety concerns.
Bird offers customer support by phone at 1-866-205-2442. General questions may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
