Scooters Bring New Transportation Option to Kirksville


Truman students now have an additional way to get around town. Earlier this year, the city partnered with Bird to bring several electric scooters to Kirksville.

Through the Bird app, users can find and activate the scooters for use around town. They are meant to be used on streets and bike lanes, and riders must obey all traffic laws. Scooters should also be parked out of the way of pedestrians when not in use.

While Bird scooters can be driven on most public streets, the interior of campus is a no-fly zone. They should not be used on campus sidewalks or parking lots, and geofencing will prohibit the scooters from working properly when they are in those areas. A complete map of no-fly zones in Kirksville is available on the Bird app.
