Bird is a last-mile electric vehicle sharing company dedicated to bringing safe, low-cost, environmentally friendly transportation solutions to communities across the world. It provides a fleet of electric, shared scooters that can be accessed via smartphone. Birds give people looking to take a short journey across town or down that "last-mile" from the subway or bus to their destination a way to do so that does not pollute the air or add to traffic. Bird works closely with the cities in which it operates so that Bird is a safe, reliable, and affordable transportation option for people who live and work there. Founded in 2017 by transportation pioneer Travis VanderZanden, Bird is headquartered in Santa Monica, Calif., and is rapidly expanding across the country and the world.
