With the Bird Visual Parking System, once an e-scooter rider completes a journey, the Bird app will prompt the rider to scan the area with a smartphone camera. The app, using data provided by Google, will then indicate where the rider can park. Cities are asked to share information about designated e-scooter parking areas directly with Bird, which the company incorporates into its app. If the rider parks the e-scooter in an approved location, Bird will end the ride. Otherwise, the app will prompt the rider to park somewhere else.
