Bird was founded in 2017 by Travis VanderZanden, a former executive in Lyft and Uber. Bird is a scooter rental company based in Santa Monica, California. It rents electric scooters in several cities in North America and Europe. The user installs the Bird smartphone application, which displays all available scooters in the neighbourhood. Before starting a ride, the user enters payment information. Then the user scans the QR code on the scooter and starts the ride. To finish the ride, the user has to take a photo of the parked. Based on this information, the price for the ride is immediately debited from the user's credit card.
