NORFOLK — The Bird Scooter saga this city has been entangled with since early August has finally come to an end — Bird representatives picked up their scooters in early February for $20,000.

That’s a total of 523 scooters.

The city had been picking up and impounding the scooters starting in August, and as of November they had collected 523 scooters, said Lori Crouch, the city’s spokeswoman.

Now that the Bird situation has been dealt with, the city is now focusing on bids from four other vendors for similar programs.

Crouch said the city hopes to launch a pilot program in the summer.

The City of Virginia Beach did not immediately respond for comment on its scooter situation with Bird.
