Where to Ride

- Parks and trails (unless noted on the Bird app map)
- Streets with speed limits of 35 mph or less
Overland Park residents have access to all-electric scooters and bikes as part of a pilot program. The program will be reviewed by City Council in November 2023.
Bird Rides, Inc. has provided Overland Park with 75 scooters and 40 electric bikes. Additional scooters and e-bikes may be added in the future. Both electric modes of transportation are available to those 18 years and older through the Bird mobile app.
Bird scooters and e-bikes will work only in Overland Park and adjoining cities where Bird operates. Once you near the city limit, the scooter or e-bike will beep. Geo locations enable the City to restrict access to areas like public soccer complexes and golf courses, the Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens, Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead and sections of trails.
Riders will accept the Bird Rental Agreement before renting a scooter or e-bike and will be asked to provide contact information, a photo of your driver’s license and a credit or debit card.
Senior citizens, U.S. Veterans, Pell Grant recipients, non-profit employees, and individuals participating in a state or federal assistance program can qualify for 50% off Bird Rides. Visit the Bird website to sign up.
Riders may be ticketed for operating a scooter or bike in a manner that violates the City’s Municipal Code.
