What about COVID-19?

Bird Canada follows guidance from Alberta Health Services during the current global pandemic.

Bird Canada recommends each rider use a pre-moistened disinfectant wipe before their ride. Bird Canada also recommends all riders wash their hands or use hand sanitizer before and after using the e-scooter, and to avoid touching their face during use.
