Starting on June 24, leading environmentally friendly electric transportation company, Bird, will be hitting the streets of Cochrane. With the recent announcement of shared e-scooter company, Roll, ceasing operations, Cochrane is excited to partner with Bird to carry out the remainder of the pilot project.
Launched in 2021, the shared electronic scooter pilot project serves to support Cochrane's environmental and transportation goals of limiting carbon emissions, reducing traffic congestion and minimizing transportation gaps. The partnership with Bird will help reduce vehicle trips, road congestion and carbon emissions, while providing a reliable and convenient transportation alternative.
Bird is passionate about vibrant communities that have less traffic, cleaner air, and safer streets.
We’re working with cities and universities across the world to provide new transportation options, complement public transit systems, and invest in safety infrastructure that benefits everyone.
Starting June 24, residents can find Bird e-scooters located throughout Cochrane. The accessible e-scooters can be activated through Bird’s free mobile phone application.
