Bird has integrated with Tbilisi e-moped provider Qari Electric through its shared e-scooter partner in the Georgian capital Scroll.
Alongside a fleet of Scroll shared e-scooters, riders in Tbilisi can now access Qari Electric e-mopeds directly through the Bird app.
Once in the app, users can select a nearby e-moped, before reserving and then unlocking it to begin their journey.
The integration is a first in Georgia and improves the position of Bird partner Scroll in the Black Sea region, where it operates in both Kyiv and Batumi in addition to Tbilisi.
The link-up is part of Bird’s Smart Bikeshare Program, with a similar partnership recently agreed to in Bordeaux as part of the scheme.
Reflecting on the integration, Yaniv Rivlin, Head of EMEA Government Partnerships and Regional General Manager at Bird, told Zag Daily: “Cities and riders are best served by efficient, collaborative eco-friendly transportation networks which include partnerships with hyper-local service providers who are most familiar with their communities.
“Our collaboration with Qari Electric illustrates this belief and we look forward to teaming with them. Whether it’s e-mopeds, e-scooters or bike-sharing, we are committed to increasing the number of sustainable micro electric solutions for everyone.”
