Micromobility provider Bird has announced the launch of its integration with Gira, the public bikeshare service in Lisbon, marking its first smart bikeshare integration of 2022.
Under this unique multimodal collaboration, riders in the Portuguese capital can now see and access Gira bikes directly from the Bird app. Gira stations and the number of available bikes at each will be clearly visible alongside Bird scooters, helping to promote sustainable and affordable transportation in the city.
“We’re honoured to team with Gira on this initiative that will increase access to clean transportation alternatives in Lisbon,” said Brian Buccella, Bird’s Senior Vice President of Government Partnerships and Consumer Products. “Portugal is quickly becoming a leader in sustainable transportation in Europe, and Bird is dedicated to helping this progress continue through strong local partnerships, service expansions and our most innovative technologies.”
To access Gira bikes from the Bird app, riders simply tap the green bike icon, to link directly to Gira.
Lisbon joins a growing list of cities across Europe that offer local bike and e-moped integrations directly from the Bird app, including Oslo, Rome, Florence, Bordeaux and Tbilisi, along with a growing number of cities in the US.
