Scooter-share firm Bird is to acquire Scoot, a San Francisco-based electric vehicle (EV) company.
Scoot began deploying electric scooters in San Francisco in 2012 and has expanded in Santiago, Chile and Barcelona.
Travis VanderZanden, founder and CEO of Bird says the partnership will work toward replacing “car trips with micro mobility options for all”.
Scoot will continue to operate under the same name but as a subsidiary of Bird.
