Bird Access offers unlimited rides of 30 minutes or less for $5 a month to low-income riders who are enrolled or eligible for a government assistance program. Bird Access riders in select cities can pay with cash at over 27,000 CVS and 7-11 retailers for Bird credits or pay with prepaid debit cards, which can be used in-app. The program also offers riders without smartphones an option to sign up for text-to-ride to unlock vehicles through SMS text messages. To enroll in Bird Access or the text-to-unlock program, email proof of eligibility, your government-issued identification, your full name and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org. Text-to-unlock instructions will be sent to participating riders so that scooters can be unlocked via SMS message.
To opt-out of this program please message us through the app or at Hello@bird.co.
