Where to Ride
Care for pedestrians. No riding on pavements unless local law requires or permits — it endangers members of our community who want to walk freely. We’re all in this together, so let’s be good neighbours and look out for one another.
Ride in bike lanes or close to the right kerb.
Where to Park
Park Birds out of the public right of way — keeping walkways, drives, access ramps, and fire hydrants clear.
Park Birds close to the kerb, facing the street near designated bike or scooter parking areas, trees, or street signs.
Make sure your kickstand is securely in the down position so that the Bird stays upright.
Avoid uneven surfaces like grass, gravel, rocks, or inclines.
Wear a Helmet
Bird offers free helmets to all active riders. Just cover shipping. You can request your helmet HERE
