In 2022 the City of Reno launched an e-scooter share option with Bird in Downtown and Midtown. We believe everyone should have access to safe, sustainable and affordable transportation.

Must be 18 years or older to ride. Ride in bike lanes or close to the right curb, unless in an area where sidewalk riding is allowed. Use of a helmet is encouraged. You can obtain a helmet from the Nevada Department of Transportation and Bird.
