What is Bird?

A Bird is a Micro EV vehicle. A rider uses the map in the Bird app to find the closest Bird. They can also reserve a Bird up to 30 minutes in advance. These scooters and bikes reduce carbon emissions and traffic, helping the environment and clearing the air.

What Do I Need to Get Started?

  • Access to a warehouse–You’ll need space to store and care for your fleet
  • A large vehicle to carry Birds–for deployment, relocation and collection
  • Experience running a business–You’ll be managing your own business, so this is not a simple side hustle. We have marked it as MEDIUM difficulty.
