Becoming a Bird Charger: Earnings and Insights

In an ever-growing era of eco-conscious commuting, Bird electric scooters have soared in popularity, offering a green alternative to urban transport. As the demand for these scooters increases, so does the need for charging them. This is where Bird Chargers come into play, individuals who play an essential role in keeping the fleet powered and ready for riders.

What is a Bird Charger?

A Bird Charger is an independent contractor who collects, recharges, and redistribiles Bird electric scooters around their city. Chargers use a special app to locate scooters that need charging, and once charged, place them in designated areas, known as 'nests,' for riders to use the next day.

How Much Do Bird Chargers Earn?

The payment for Bird Chargers can vary widely, depending on a number of factors. Typically, Bird pays per scooter charged, with the price ranging from $3 to $20 per scooter. Factors affecting earnings include:

  1. Location: Some markets have higher payouts due to greater demand for scooters or less competition among chargers.

  2. Time of Day: Charging scooters during peak hours can sometimes yield higher payments.

  3. Availability: Scooters flagged as hard-to-find or those that have been idle for an extended period may offer higher bounties.

  4. Charger Ratings: Chargers with higher reliability scores may receive access to higher-paying scooters.

Maximizing Earnings as a Bird Charger

To maximize earnings, efficient chargers strategize by targeting scooters with higher bounties and optimizing their charging schedule to ensure they're collecting as many scooters as possible during their allotted time. Some even choose to pick up scooters throughout the day and charge them overnight, making the process more fluid and increasing the potential for earnings.

It is also worth noting that being a Bird Charger has associated costs, such as electricity for charging and transportation for collecting and redistributing scooters, which should be factored into the overall profitability.


The role of a Bird Charger provides an innovative way to earn extra income, but it's not a one-size-fits-all scenario. Earnings can fluctuate, and success depends on a charger’s strategy, commitment, and local market conditions. If sustainability, community service, and flexibility are values you cherish, becoming a Bird Charger could be a fitting side hustle.

For those looking to embrace the electric scooter movement while earning money, the Bird Charger program presents an engaging opportunity. Just remember, like any gig economy role, due diligence, and a smart approach can make all the difference in your earning potential.
