Bird Claims Economic, Gasoline Savings

Los Angeles-based, shared scooter and bicycle rental service Bird has put out some numbers this morning, saying that use of its service has contributed an estimated $100M in incremental spending at local businesses in 2021, and saved an estimated 1.1 million gallons of gasoline. The company said the numbers came via a six-month study from Emory University’s Goizueta School of Business. Bird said use of its vehicles saved an estimated 1,125,000 gallons of gasoline from being burned in 2021.
