Rental Prices of Bird Electric Scooters
When renting a Bird electric scooter, you can expect to pay a base fee for unlocking the scooter, as well as a per-minute charge for your ride. The exact fees may vary depending on your location, but generally, the cost to unlock a Bird scooter is around $1, and the per-minute fee ranges from $0.15 to $0.36.


Payment Options and Promo Codes
The Bird app offers a seamless payment process using a linked credit or debit card which is automatically billed once the scooter ride is complete. Bird also accepts payments through Apple Pay and Google Pay, making it even more convenient for riders to pay for their rentals. New users can take advantage of promotional codes or referral discounts to save money on their initial rides.


Factors Affecting Rental Prices
While base rental fees are consistent across cities, some factors may impact the cost of your ride. These can include dynamic pricing or surge pricing, which means rental rates may increase during periods of high demand. Additionally, local regulations and taxes imposed by respective cities can affect the final rental price.


In some cities, Bird offers lower rates during certain promotional periods or for select groups, such as students, teachers, or low-income individuals as part of its Community Pricing program. Details about these promotions can be found within the Bird app or on their website.


Bird's policies on scooter usage and how they might affect the price include the following:



  • You must be 18 years or older with a valid driver's license to rent a Bird scooter.

  • Bird scooters cannot be rented between 9 pm and 4 am in some cities, to ensure rider safety.

  • Scooters are required to be parked in designated parking zones. Improperly parked scooters may result in additional fees.

  • Responsible handling and following local traffic regulations are crucial to avoid fines or penalties that could be imposed.


In conclusion, renting a Bird electric scooter is an affordable and convenient transportation solution in urban areas. Costs vary depending on the rental duration and location, but it remains a competitive option when compared to other shared-mobility services. So whether you're a daily commuter or visiting a new city, Bird electric scooters offer a fun and efficient way to travel.
