Have you seen this electric scooters around the city and wondered what they were? They are rental scooters that you can pick up and use by downloading the app and unlocking them. These ones in particular called Bird are $1.00 to unlock and then $.15/minute after that.
Kristen and I took them for a test drive over the weekend and had a blast! You have to wear a helmet with them and you can’t use them on the sidewalk so you have to be careful. Now the city is trying to figure out what to do about them so they might not be around for very long. They are working on putting some laws together about their use in the city and that may lead to them being banned like they were in Austin, Texas recently.
