A sure sign of Spring in Okotoks is the arrival of e-scooters.
Bird scooters are back for their third season with the town, and there are a few ways to save on trips.
A new Community Pricing Program is available, where low-income residents, seniors, and healthcare workers can qualify for 25 per cent off their rides.
Regular riders can also get three rides for $15, and monthly passes are now available.
As usual, the scooters can only be ridden by one person at a time and only on sidewalks, bike lanes, pathways, and unmarked roadways/roads without markings.
They’re limited to 20 km/h, and helmets are recommended by the town and Bird.
Last year, Okotokians rode over 103,000 km and had the third-highest average trip length in Canada.
More information can be found on the town’s website.
