A year ago, an electric scooter that was not fixed to the streets of San Francisco and Santa Monica appeared. The first reaction was embarrassing, and eventually I fired up to shame. Companies that scattered these scooters anywhere like birds and limes seemed to embody the arrogance of techno brothers. It is certain that the fashion will disappear and where the scooter comes to overseas and sent to the landfill in China.
After 12 months, Scooters are in more than 100 cities around the world and are very popular in most opinions. Since the launch of Bird and Lime, there were over 10 million itineraries each. The value of lime is one billion dollars. Birds of 2 billion dollars. Running giants Uber and Lyft have bought a bicycle sharing company and applied for a license to operate their e-scooters. The first complaint about vandalism, blocked sidewalks and illegal cyclists is still effective, but since then, we have reached the recognition that these things are pretty pleasant! It is also an important link that helps cities resolve important traffic problems.
In this context, Travis VanderZanden, Bird CEO, Hatsuko It is the second stage of the plan to conquer the micro mobility field. Prior to establishing Bird, VanderZanden was a hiking officer. Lyft 's Chief Operating Officer (COO) was appointed until joining Uber in August 2014. Former employer who claimed that Vander Zanden stole confidential documents and he landed on him in hot water. The parties settled the undisclosed amount after that.
Now, VanderZanden is there to steal Uber and Lyft customers, or at least people who are using car pool to travel a short time around the city. He talked about increasing Bird's number of users, building a more robust scooter, and competing with previous employers in the passenger car division.
