Bird is rolling out its Bird Three, the world’s most eco-friendly shared scooter, in Arlington. Arlington will be one of the first cities in the DMV to have an exclusive fleet of Bird Three e-scooters.
When Arlington residents choose to ride a Bird Three down to dinner at the Crossing Clarendon or to start their holiday shopping early on Rosslyn, they’ll have the safest and smartest riding experience possible. More than just a scooter, the Bird Three is the culmination of four years of experience working in partnership with cities, like Arlington, to create accessible eco-friendly transportation options and to reduce reliance on gas-powered vehicles and the congestion they create.
The Bird Three was developed by Bird‘s in-house team of top engineering and vehicle design experts with an unrelenting focus on sustainability. Key highlights include:
Dual Independent Brakes: Superior braking performance on each wheel that results in a shorter stopping distance.
Autonomous Emergency Braking: The industry’s only active safety technology designed to prevent brake failure.
Speed Zone, Parking and Sidewalk Compliance: Bird OS enforces strict adherence to speed limits, no-ride, no-parking and reduced-speed zones in cities, including improved sidewalk detection, built into the scooter.
Increased Capacity: With capacity for smart batteries of up to 1 kWh, Bird Three can travel farther and remain on the street longer while requiring significantly fewer recharges.
