Bird designs an experimental run program for electric wheelchair and portability bike rentals in NYC


Bike organization Bird is collaborating with portability vehicle organization Scootaround on an experimental run program that will test available electric vehicle rentals in New York City this mid year, the organizations reported. Another catch in Bird's primary application will let individuals with portability issues pick one of three distinct models to lease, including three-and four-wheel bikes and the Whill Model Ci2 power wheelchair. 

When the rider picks a vehicle, they pick a rental length somewhere in the range of one and 14 days. Riders will get an in-person instructional exercise the day of their rental to guarantee they're happy with utilizing, charging, and putting away the vehicle. Bird has a complementary number for inquiries regarding the cycle. 

"As micromobility alternatives, for example, shared bicycles and bikes keep on extending, we should guarantee the advantages of these further developed transportation networks be made as generally accessible as could be expected, incorporating to people with incapacities," Kerry Renaud, CEO of Scootaround said in a proclamation. 

New York State lifted its restriction on electric bikes in 2020, and the city Department of Transportation reported Bird, Lime, and VeoRide would be important for its e-bike pilot in the Bronx this mid year. 

Bird intends to carry out the organization with Scootaround to more urban areas not long from now, in light of the consequences of the NYC pilot.
