Electric scooters are now available for rent in Short North, downtown, Arena District, and Bexley.
The scooter-sharing service costs $1 to start a ride a 15 cents per minute after that.
They can be located with a GPS-based app.

Riders must be at least 18 years old and must sign a safety agreement before the first use.
Bird hopes Columbus accepts the new service more widely than in San Francisco, Austin, Nashville, Charlotte, Denver, Miami, and Indianapolis which are all markets where the company failed.
