City of Milwaukee reaches settlement with scooter company Bird Rides

"Given the excitement and demand for our next generation e-scooter, we are also making a limited supply of Bird Ones available to own", Travis VanderZanden, founder and CEO of Bird, said in a release.

Reportedly, Bird One is equipped with a battery created to last more than 4x longer in the shared space, last twice as long and cover a longer range.

The Santa Monica-based startup has seen its scooter-share fleets scale up to 100 cities around the world in the a year ago or so.

"Studies have shown that only between one and four percent of riders are wearing helmets of those injured, and scooter companies are not providing a helmet for every ride".

We first started hearing about the damn things last fall, and April was supposed see three companies launch about 1,800 scooters, but now city officials are saying that Tampa's Shared Motorized Scooter Pilot Program might not start until the end of this month of June.

Lime scooters are out, at least for now, but two new providers will soon deploy their dockless fleets in Kansas City, Missouri. Those scooters are mostly models designed for retail sales to individual consumers, not sharing services.

The One will first arrive in Los Angeles and will reach other areas in the coming weeks. They also plan to dock scooters along the Prospect and Troost bus lines. Earlier models from Xiaomi and Ninebot, Segway's parent company, broke down frequently.

"Bird One builds on the benefits and learnings of Bird Zero and is forecasted to last in the sharing environment for well over a year", VanderZanden said. Customers can pre-order the aluminum scooters online in three colors - jet black, dove white and electric rose - and expect to receive the device sometime this summer, the company said. It also comes with anti-theft features, such as Global Positioning System and a digital lock. Bird lost money on each scooter and is now planning to transition its fleet to in-house models. Until now, Seattle has banned scooter-share, and city law currently bars use of motorized foot scooters on sidewalks and bicycle lanes.
