Bird was chosen as one of the two e-scooter-share companies allowed to operate in Calgary for the summer and recently made a deal with the town of Okotoks.

“Calgarians have really embraced this fast and effective mode of transportation and now as the city begins to open up we see nothing but brighter days ahead for Bird Canada in Alberta,” said the company’s CEO in a release.

The company expects to create about 50 jobs in the city with the move.

Bird is also launching service in the university district in partnership with the U of C.
