Bird Lands in McPherson
McPherson – The City of McPherson is partnering with a shared electric scooter company, Bird Rides, to bring e-scooters to the city. Just in time for summer, Bird is a naturally socially distanced way to get around. The scooters are available through mobile phone applications and riders pay to use the scooter per minute, at no cost to the city.
The electric scooters can be used on roads and in bike lanes and have a maximum speed of 15mph. Scooters must be parked out of the way of pedestrians and never blocking driveways, and in designated areas (see attached). Riders are required to be 18 years old and above to access the scooters. They are also encouraged to wear a helmet on every ride and are required to obey all standard rules of the road. Please see City Ordinance No. 3358 that gives guidelines and rules for electric scooters.
Bird offers the following programs that are available for all who qualify:
If a resident has questions or concerns about the e-scooters the company can be reached directly at 1-866-205-2442 or firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about the company can be found on their website (www.bird.co) and on their blog (www.bird.co/blog).
