The Bird is Here!

In front of Rose Cafe. Has its own locking device.

Fly away on a Bird! Get the Bird app and for $1.00 plus .15 per minute you can go about 15 miles and at 15 mph. When you’re done, just lock it and leave it. You do not need to lock it to something. Birds are all over the Santa Monica area and have been heading south to Venice.

They were started in Santa Monica last September by Travis VanderZanden, a former vice-president of a division of Uber. City of Santa Monica has filed a criminal complaint because Bird is operating without a license. Plans are for other towns, other states.

People do not steal them because they have a locking device and they can be located on GPS. In fact, the Bird app will tell one where the closest Bird is.
