Airdrie should be seeing more e-scooters on the roadways by the beginning of April.

Bird Micro-Electric Mobility plans to distribute their e-scooters after the mini-winter we currently have. 

"I would say as soon as the snow is officially melted, is when we're looking to launch. So, at the latest April 1," stated Austin Spademan, Head of Government Partnerships for Bird Canada.

According to Spademan, the only reason why they haven't launched all of their e-scooters yet is because of the snow.

According to Bird, they continued to see strong ridership in 2023. Airdrie saw well over 13,000 rides with 40,000 kilometres across rides. Bird had riders that enjoyed the program and took over 190 rides last season.

"We've seen really solid demand on ridership year-over-year, we've continued to see a really solid population using our devices."

From the perspective of Bird, they are now a permanent transportation fixture in Airdrie, mentioned Spademan.

"We think we've got a really solid season in front of us here."

This is the final year of the e-scooter pilot program within Airdrie. Once summer is in the rearview mirror, city council will decide what the future will hold when it comes to e-scooters.

Chris MacIsaac, Team Leader for Transit at the City of Airdrie stated he thought last was a good overall year as the city didn't have as many concerns from the public when it came to the e-scotters.

Neuron Mobility officially dropped off their e-scooters back on Friday, March 15.

Bird Micro-Electric Mobility and Neuron Mobility are the only two e-scooter providers within the city.
