At the start, Bird would only ask for chargers to pick up a scooter at night and every night, all scooters would be picked up. As there are now more scooters and batteries have improved, Bird, Lime, and Skip are making scooters available to pick up throughout the day.
That means that if you want to pick up all scooters on your block, you need to be checking all of the different scooter company apps every few minutes. This is super tiring.
That’s why you can track a location and get push notifications when scooters show up nearby using Scooter Map.
To set up push notifications, you will need to sign up for an account and become a Super Charger (we have a free 7 day trial).
Once you have an account, you can add a tracked location on your profile:
Once you have set up a tracked location, Scooter Map will monitor that area.
If a scooter that we haven’t seen in the past half hour shows up on the map, we will send you a push message with the scooter ID and a link that shows the location of the scooter.
