This one-of-a-kind initiative comes as Bird continues to experience growing interest from higher education institutions to provide students and surrounding communities with access to shared micro-EVs. Bird has seen double-digit rider growth during the back to school period across the U.S., providing e-scooters as a last-mile solution to 140 campuses today, the highest of any operator.
‘Bird U’ Ambassadors will receive discounts off each journey and earn ‘Ride Points’ simply by sharing their own personal coupon code with friends and classmates. Ambassadors are also encouraged to share their own experiences with safe and responsible riding by posting content on social media and other sites.
“We have seen first hand the popularity and increased demand for our e-scooters on university campuses nationwide,” said Brian Buccella, Senior Vice President of Global Policy, Bird. “Engaging with students via our Bird U College Ambassador Program not only rewards their loyalty but also helps to make their city more liveable for their peers, visitors and residents alike.”
