Allow Bird Electric Scooters to launch in Austin, Texas

This petition made change with 31 supporters!

Bird is a newly created, shared electric scooter company that allows anyone who has a valid drivers license and is at least 18 years of age to rent a scooter for $1. This company offers a fun, low-cost, environmentally friendly alternative form of transportation. This phenomenon is different from Austins B-Cycle since these scooters do not have to be docked, you simply ride them to your destination and leave it there. However, the technology is just as simple: you download the app, register, and find the nearest scooter. These scooters, that are known as "birds", have already launched in several big cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco, and would fit right in with Austins fast moving city life. Imagine walking out of a store on one end of South Congress, finding a bird, and taking a quick fun ride to your car--genius! Allowing Bird to fully launch in Austin would make everyone's lives easier, business professionals, students, tourists, and basically anyone with $1 and the app.
