"Birds" Land in Littleton
Bird, a shared electric scooter company, is bringing e-scooters to the City of Littleton this month. Through the Bird smartphone app, riders locate an e-scooter, scan the QR code on the e-scooter, and start their ride. Riders also pay for their ride through the app, with no cost to the city. The e-scooters are available in various locations and require the mobile app to operate.
E-scooters can be ridden throughout Littleton’s municipal boundaries, with some exceptions. This partnership with Bird enables riders to replace short car trips to or from downtown with a scooter trip, which may help with parking and congestion on Main Street.
Riders must be at least 18 years old, are encouraged to wear a helmet on every ride, and are required to obey all rules of the road. The electric scooters can be used on roads and in bike lanes and have a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour, but the limit will be capped at 10 miles per hour when operating in the area around Main Street and Alamo in Downtown Littleton. E-scooters must be parked out of the way of pedestrians and cannot block sidewalks or driveways.
