(Trenton, Michigan) – May 27th, 2022_ Trenton and Bird, a leader in environmentally friendly electric transportation, are teaming up to bring shared e-scooters to the city. The eco-friendly transportation option can be activated through Bird’s free mobile phone application and used to replace gas-powered car trips when going to the store, meeting up with friends, exploring the community and taking many other daily trips.
Mayor Rzeppa stated “We’re excited to have Trenton join communities across Michigan and 350 other cities across the globe with access to Bird scooters. Residents and visitors will now have access to a new, innovative, and environmentally friendly way to safely enjoy our trails, restaurants, and businesses. We hope everyone enjoys their rides around Trenton, and we’re excited to see the positive impact it has on outdoor recreation and our small businesses in town.”
Bird aims to make cities more livable by reducing car trips, traffic and carbon emissions.
