Where are the Birds?
Over the holidays, the Birds that usually live on our campus decided to go into hibernation. Bird Scooters, who entered into a partnership with Abilene Christian University’s Student Government Association at the start of the Fall 2018 semester, recently pulled the scooters from campus and moved them to a local storage facility for safe keeping over the holidays. The scooters, which have become a staple across campus, are set to return in the coming weeks, as weather patterns head to a warmer average. The decision came amid decreased usage over the holidays, with student travel and extreme winter weather being the main factors behind the decline. Additionally, with the recent presence of ice and snow, Bird made the decision to remove the scooters from campus to ensure the safety of both riders and chargers.
We will be sure to post an update once the scooters have returned to campus for normal operation.
