Travis VanderZanden, Bird’s CEO, said the move would help cities cut down on congestion: “Through our integration with Google Maps, we are making it easier for individuals to embrace new modes of eco-friendly travel and to ultimately eliminate our collective reliance on congestion inducing, gas-powered cars – especially in urban settings across the globe where a majority of trips are under five miles.”
Spin, another dockless scooter company, also announced it would be coming to the map app this week. The San Francisco-based company is already in Basildon, Braintree, Brentwood, Chelmsford, Clacton-on-Sea, Colchester and Milton Keynes.
Its CEO, Ben Bear, said they wanted to make it “just as easy, and even more convenient to get around with bikes, buses, trains and scooters as it is with a personal car.”
