The Village has partnered with Bird to offer e-scooters in our community. These eco-friendly scooters can be located and activated through Bird’s mobile application. Riders should always obey traffic signals and watch for cars, pedestrians, and cyclists. Scooters must be parked out of the way of pedestrians and never block sidewalks, ramps, doorways, or driveways. Riders must be at least 18 years old and are encouraged to wear a helmet.
If a resident has questions or concerns about the scooters, the company can be reached directly at (866) 205-2442, firstname.lastname@example.org, or through Community Mode on the Bird app. Enjoy the ride!
The Village of Machesney Park participates in regional transportation planning efforts conducted by the Region 1 Planning Council, a special-purpose regional government agency serving the Northern Illinois region. For more information about the Region 1 Planning Council, visit r1planning.org.
