Bird and WeGo Transit Agency have announced a partnership to bring microtransit to Nashville, Tennessee.
Microtransit enables the increased reach of public transportation by pairing services with micromobility solutions to help riders benefit from clean, cost-effective alternatives to driving.
“Mode shift on a massive scale requires partnerships and collaborations across companies such as Bird and public organizations like WeGo. Together, we can go further and have an even greater impact on providing people with a clean, safe alternative to transportation options that result in tailpipe emissions. We look forward to seeing the results of our collaboration with WeGo and applaud the city’s commitment to eco-friendly transportation alternatives that complement their existing transit networks.”
Bird has used WeGo data to identify commonly used bus stops that would benefit from micromobility parking zones and consistently available e-scooters. The partnership now aims to ensure these bus services are easily accessible.
Bird e-scooters are consequently available within an expanded operational range so that riders travelling to and from Nashville can complete their journey using a combination of shared e-scooters and public transport, rather than private cars.
Throughout the programme, Bird will share insights with WeGo transit and evaluate how the service can be improved and determine whether more local transit stops could benefit from e-scooter availability.
