Bird Lands in Coalinga, Starting February 3, 2022
The City of Coalinga is partnering with Bird, the Los Angeles, California-based, shared electric scooter company, to bring e-scooters to the city in the coming days. The scooters are available through a mobile phone application and riders pay to use the scooter per minute, at no cost to the city.
“We are happy to welcome Bird to the City of Coalinga and look forward to having the scooters available in the community. I think they will make a great addition to our community.~ Mayor Ron Ramsey
The company plans on offering scooters to residents and visitors in order to provide another transportation option to get around town and enjoy the community.
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 or sidewalk path of travel. 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.
“Scooters make for a useful way to bridge the gap between public transportation and a person’s home or work. More transportation options can bring a lot of benefits to the city.” ~ Councilman Adam Adkisson
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).
