Bird Scooters will return to the streets of Louisville after coming to an agreement with the city.

"Since our streets are public, the City was within its rights to make the decision to allow Bird to operate on the Plaza without involving our management team".

The question of who chose to pull the plug triggered a several hours of confusion Wednesday.

"Representatives contacted city officials about Bird's presence in Plaza".

"The City was not directly involved in the conversation", he said in an email. "After city officials passed along this feedback, Bird reached out to plaza management and proactively made the Plaza a no ride zone".

Keeler declined to provide details about the safety incidents.

"We look forward to testing our affordable transportation option with the people and communities of Cleveland, as they recognize the need for an accessible and reliable transit system", a Bird spokesperson said.

However it happened, the news sparked concern among Bird fans.

Silicon Valley's venture capitalists may be pouring billions into electric-scooter startups, but companies like Bird, Lime, and Spin are already facing backlash from residents.

The city just signed an interim operating agreement with Bird on July 31 to allow the company to do business in Kansas City. And San Francisco was forced to issue permits to a handful of scooter companies to clamp down on the increasing numbers of scooters clogging up the city streets.

As far as distance is concerned, the scooters can go up to 15 miles on a single charge. Riders can rent a scooter through an app on their smartphone and drop it off anywhere in the city when they are finished.
