Designed exclusively for Bird, Bird Cruiser provides people choice and increases access for a greater number of individuals who want to replace car trips with environmentally friendly transportation.

“Bird's introduction of shared e-scooters spurred a global phenomenon and mode shift away from cars,” said Travis VanderZanden, Founder and CEO of Bird. “To further accelerate progress on our mission to make cities more livable, we are providing additional environmentally friendly micro-mobility alternatives—including Bird Cruiser. Starting this summer, people can move about their city and explore new neighborhoods together, without a car. Designed and engineered in California, Bird Cruiser is an inclusive electric-powered option that is approachable, easy-to-ride and comfortable on rough roads.”

Diversifying Bird's fleet of shared micro-mobility vehicles helps to meet the needs of an increased number of people who are looking for alternatives to car trips and prefer to sit versus stand while traveling to their destination.

Bird Cruiser, the first seated vehicle from Bird, can accommodate up to two adults and features a padded seat to make a rider's journey comfortable. Option of pedal-assist or peg to meet the preferences of riders is also available. Hydraulic disc brakes make it reliable, safe, and responsive slowing and stopping.

A 52V battery helps ensure reliability and to extend the “last mile.” Advanced LCD Matrix Display for easy viewing is also featured. A custom motor ensures a ride will not be disrupted by a hill or other incline.

Bird Cruiser will be available in a few test markets this summer as part of Bird's fleet of shared vehicles as well as via Bird Platform Partners.
