Bird Links With Local Bike Sharing Services In LA, Elsewhere

Santa Monica-based micro mobility provider Bird announced this morning that it has begun offering up integration between its app and local bikeshare services in Los Angeles, as well as Oslo, Austin, San Antonio, and Milkwaukee. According to Bird, it will feature bicycles available in LA’s Metro Bike program directly in its app. Bird said the integration is “completely cost free” to cities and local operators, with riders searching for vehicles in the Bird app to automatically see nearby public bike stations and the number of bikes currently available at each.
