Bird Scooters & Bikes
Bird is an environmentally friendly electric vehicle company that brings affordable transportation solutions to communities worldwide. The company quickly took off, and "Birds" became the most popular mode of transportation in urban areas. Recently, Annapolis partnered with Bird to introduce a sustainable way to promote an efficient and fun ride. Need a helmet? Bird will ship you one free from the safety tab on the app!
Riders can use Bird's smartphone application to access the scooters and bikes on Main Street and West Street. Users scan a QR code on each vehicle to unlock it and start riding. Then, after hanging around the city, you park your ride on the sidewalk and end the session on the app. This convenient and fun way to zip around the city will add more fun to your stay in Annapolis!
Bird offers e-bikes as well as e-scooters.
