An Electric Scooter Community on a Mission to Stamp out Transportation Mediocrity.
so they exist...after riding around today I didnt see any but did see the new es4 on Lyft platform
I do use scooter map I have noticed a lot more lime and lyft scooters than bird, most birds are es4 and located near the river and vandy. Lime are all over east Nashville and Germantown as well as lyft filling in the gaps. I did see a lot of the new es4s from jump and some other company where the brain is on the front post and it has a built in dashboardclayton wrote: ↑Sun Mar 03, 2019 9:49 pmDid you see many Birds in general? Seems a lot of chargers aren't bothering with them at $3 a scoot, and the charger map is lit up like a Christmas tree even during the day. A lot of them are ghosts, reporting the last known location, but last GPS contact several months old, with a silly $3 bounty, except for some that have been missing for 6 months, and those are never coming back.
I'd love to know how many scooters Bird has bought so far. They cost Bird an average of $550 dollars each, so even 10,000 scooters would cost them 5.5 million just to purchase the hardware. Seems like chump change with a 2 billion dollar valuation, and yet they desperately need more investor money. Cities are starting to play hardball, and are charging fees for licenses, per scooter fees, liability payments, and fees for each nest. All you have to do is kick them out of your city, then negotiate a good contract. They have no choice if they want to participate in that area, and since they keep bragging about growing market share, they'll pay a fools price to participate, unless they want to brag about expanding into 1 stoplight towns. Their greed is their weakness.
Anyone have a guess on how many scooters Bird has?
