Bird Canada Brings s.h.a.r.e. Safe Streets Tour to Calgary on Aug. 8, 2019

Sponsored by Businesswire

Bird Canada today announced that the s.h.a.r.e. Safe Streets tour is making its first stop in Canada on Thursday, August 8th at 2pm MDT at the Simmons Building in Calgary’s East Village. Reinforcing its dedication to safety, Bird’s 100 city s.h.a.r.e. Safe Streets tour is designed to ensure responsible riding by making safety simple and giving riders (and members of the community) attainable and actionable tips to use for their next ride.

The event will provide attendees with micro-mobility vehicle basics, including in-depth information on how to properly, responsibly, and safely ride and mindfully park e-scooters; general scooting best practices; and rules for respecting pedestrians, businesses, and traffic to ensure safe ride-sharing in the City of Calgary.

Responsible riding helps improve neighborhoods and communities for everyone. Through its s.h.a.r.e. Safe Street event, Bird aims to help make responsible riding simple and achievable by providing attendees with five essential s.h.a.r.e tips:

  • Safe riding. Navigate traffic with care.
  • Heightened awareness. Anticipate what others might do.
  • Always alert. Save the selfies and music for after the ride.
  • Respect for pedestrians. Yield and keep walkways accessible.
  • Every voice matters. Get involved to help your city reshape its streets.

The event is ideal for those who are interested in riding e-scooters or want greater insights on the Bird service and its fleet of e-scooters. Attendees will be able to ride one of 25 Birds that will be onsite at the event, within the event perimeter. Bird will also be giving out free helmets at the event and will also be providing attendees with a promo code that gives them one free ride for up to $7 (CDN) in value.

Additional information on e-scooter safety is available in this safety report published earlier this year by Bird.
