Scooters ride in London
US electric-scooter operator Bird Rides has launched a pilot service in London. The trial comprises 50 scooters plying their trade along a 1.2m East London route between Stratford rail station in East London and technology campus Here East (where Bird has an office).
The two-wheelers are restricted to specific pathways and the electric motor shuts down in case of strays. Journeys cost £1 pound, plus £0.2 minute.
