As scooter services ramp back up in cities around the world, Bird is doubling down on the health and safety of colleagues, riders, and communities. They have implemented company-wide safety procedures to ensure that micromobility can provide essential transportation services in a post-COVID world with the intention of keeping vehicles sanitized and flattening the curve. Bird has laid out clear guidelines for deep cleaning and sanitizing vehicles. They have instructed technicians and field teams to use CDC-approved disinfectant products to thoroughly sanitize each vehicle that is recharged or serviced. Regular spot cleanings are also being performed on surfaces such as bells, throttles, and handlebars. Bird team members have been supplied with the materials necessary to keep themselves and their work surfaces safe including face masks, hand sanitizer, nitrile gloves, protective goggles, and disinfectant sprays/wipes. All technicians are required to wash their hands regularly and dispose of gloves after each use. Bird is also promoting health and safety alongside city partners by ensuring that progress is being made on infrastructure and open streets not only during, but also continued onwards, after the pandemic as well.
