Looks like Bird has relaunched in Saint Louis today. I didn’t get any official notice but they are all over the place this morning.

Time to get back at it!

Oh hey, also from STL.

So, there are HUNDREDS of Birds out for bounty tonight. I assume this will change once Bird starts signing up more chargers from STL, but dang; if I had a truck and a room full of cables, I would quit my job!

How do you think these will fare in the winter? I for one don't want to be outside unless it's Art Hill in the snow.

I was really surprised to see so many birds out last night too!

It’s the perfect time to be a charger in St Louis. I’ve got a cargo van and 11 chargers and was able to pick up 11 red birds this morning while dropping off yesterday’s collection.

I had the same thought about winter. It won’t be too long before we find out!

Jeez, you're a maniac! I have a sedan that fits 5, and 6 chargers; they sent me 3 by accident lol. Yesterday was all $10s, but tonight was all greens, and a lot less out there. Way more than I ever would have thought.

A few reds near me and the arch were still unfound (and it seems the app only lets you mark one missing per some amount of time, becuause the button wasn't working for me on the second missing one).

STL chargers must be waking up.

Any tips for getting them to enable my charger mode? I live right off Cherokee & Illinois Ave – there are NO Limes near me so I have been driving all over downtown all the time lately. It would be so much better to just focus on Birds for now, but they won't enable my charger mode and just send a canned response in the Help section of the app.

Anyone have a direct number for an account specialist at Bird that I could try calling? I want to start now before the STL Bird charger market is too saturated!

LimeBike doesn’t have many scooters out in Saint Louis as far as I can tell but Bird has hundreds.

I don’t really know Bird’s process for accepting chargers. My best guess is that it’s first come, first serve. Sorry I can’t be of any help, just be patient and I’m sure they’ll get to you in time.

Have you filled out the profile information in the App? My wife signed up to be a charger and after a week went by she figured this part out. The day after she completed this info Bird contacted her to schedule the charger orientation.
