Bird Frequent Flyer Loyalty Program

Now available to frequent users! The program is similar to other loyalty programs allowing riders to earn rides each time they unlock and ride a Bird scooter. However, unlike most loyalty programs, riders do not have the option to earn points or miles. Instead, riders can only earn rides. Rides count towards status with Bird. Each status tier allows riders to access various perks, including discounts, priority customer support, and advanced ride reservations.

The program is straight-forward and easy to use. Riders are informed of their current status as well as the number of rides required to reach the next tier when they open the app. Riders will also find details by navigating to the in-app menu and selecting the rewards bar located near the top of the screen.

Bird’s Frequent Flyer loyalty program features three tiers; Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Each tier features a variety of benefits, including: discounts, advanced scooter reservations, and priority support.

Riding on Campus

When riding on campus you are required to only ride on the designated path shown above.

When riding on campus you do not have the right of way. Pedestrians always have the right of way.

Be courteous to others and aware of how you riding could impact the safety of others on campus. Even though you may be in control of your bike or skateboard you cannot assume the pedestrians near you are aware of your presence.

Riding on City Streets

The San Diego Municipal Code and the Calfornia Vehicle Code require that all bicyclists and skateboarders obey the law.

When riding a bike on city streets you must obey all California vehicle laws. This means stopping at stop signs and riding with the flow of traffic.

When riding a skateboard on city streets you must ride only on the sidewalks. Riding in the roadways is a misdemeanor.
