How to Rent a Bird Electric Scooter: A Step-by-Step Guide

With the growing popularity of eco-friendly transportation options, electric scooter rental companies have taken the world by storm. Bird is one of the leading electric scooter rental companies, offering a convenient and fun way to get around. In this step-by-step guide, we'll walk you through the process of renting a Bird electric scooter.

  1. Download the App: The first and most important step is to download the Bird app on your smartphone. Available on both iOS and Android devices, the app allows you to locate and rent Bird scooters in your area.

  2. Create an Account: After downloading the app, create a new account. You'll need to provide your name, email address, and phone number. Make sure to have a valid form of payment, such as a credit card or debit card, on hand as well.

  3. Locate a Scooter: Once you've logged into your account, you'll see a map showing the location of available Bird scooters nearby. Each scooter icon is color-coded to indicate battery life, making it easy to find a scooter with plenty of charge.

  1. Unlock the Scooter: When you've found a scooter you'd like to rent, simply walk up to it and scan the QR code located on the handlebar with your smartphone. This will unlock the scooter, and you'll be ready to ride.

  2. Ride Safely: Bird scooters can be ridden on streets, bike lanes, and sidewalks, but always follow the rules of the road and be aware of your surroundings. Wear a helmet and obey traffic laws to ensure a safe and enjoyable ride.

  3. End Your Ride: When you're finished riding, simply park the scooter in a safe and unobstructive location and tap the End Ride button on the app. Make sure the scooter is not blocking any walkways or entrances.

  1. Payment: The app will calculate the cost of your ride based on the duration and distance, and your payment method on file will be charged accordingly. You'll also receive a ride summary via email for your records.

Renting a Bird electric scooter is a fun and efficient way to explore your city. With this guide, you'll be zipping around town in no time!
