The City of Greensburg is partnering with shared electric scooter company, Bird Rides, to bring e-scooters to the city. Bird scooters are available through a mobile phone application and riders pay to use the scooter per minute, at no cost to the city.
The company plans on offering scooters to residents and visitors in order to help reduce carbon emissions, as well as traffic congestion on roadways. The scooters also provide a safe way to get around and offer residents without automobiles another transportation option.
The electric scooters can be used on roads and in bike lanes, and have a maximum speed of 15mph. Scooters must be parked out of the way of pedestrians and never blocking driveways. Riders are required to be 18 years-old and above to access the scooters. They are also encouraged to wear a helmet on every ride and required to obey all standard rules of the road.
Visit Greensburg will be sponsoring a promotional code for residents that can be used for a free ride. Riders can enter TREEBIRD! into the app, and take their first ride to anywhere in the community. Visit Greensburg is sponsoring the free rides so residents and visitors alike can do and see more of our community. Riders can easily hop on a scooter and visit our locally owned businesses in the downtown square, spend time in our parks, and view community art without getting in a vehicle.
