To expand its on-demand accessible mobility program to cities like San Diego and San Francisco, the leading micro-mobility company Bird Rides, Inc. has collaborated with Scootaround, a global leader in solutions related to personal transportation.
Based out of Santa Monica, California, Bird Rides operates in over 100 cities in the Middle East, Europe and North America offering eco-friendly car-free options of commute. With the aim to make cleaner transportation a reality for everyone, Bird wanted to expand the scope of its operations to the elderly and people with disabilities.
What is the on-demand accessible mobility program?
The program aims to benefit persons with disabilities and improve their access to sustainable mobility. Such riders can search, book and pay for the selected Scootaround accessibility vehicles using the custom Scootaround interface on the Bird app, directly.
This program also provides riders with the benefits of price exclusivity and special discounts on booking Scootaround vehicles via the Bird app. There is also the option of 3 day free rentals in some regions. Riders can also get access to high-quality vehicles like the award-winning WHILL Model Ci2.
"With Scootaround, we are able to create a trusted, personal on-demand, transportation service for people with disabilities," said Rebecca Hahn, Chief Corporate Social Responsibility Officer at Bird Rides, Inc.
How to access the program?
The process to access the program is very simple. Riders with special needs can book a reservation for the Scootaround accessibility vehicles by -
? Visit the Bird app
? Tap on the marked button at the bottom of the app
? Choose the preferred type of accessible vehicle from a range of options
? Define the duration for which they want to rent the vehicle (up to 3 days)
? Enter a suitable pickup point and drop-off location
? Submit the details
Riders can also reach out to the respective representatives using a toll-free number and get instant answers to any of their queries about the rental procedure.
On the delivery day, riders will also receive a full, one on one, in-person tutorial on the usage and maintenance of the accessibility vehicles to make it easy for them to use, charge and store the vehicle during their rental period.
Scootaround supports Bird’s commitment to making sustainable mobility accessible and convenient for everyone. A change to a cleaner transportation age is in the interest of all communities. This collaboration will help in extending this initiative to more regions and make it more inclusive.
