EDMONTON -- Bird Canada has launched a new program to help teachers return to their classrooms amid COVID-19: free scooter rides.
The company is offering teachers two free 30-minute rides every day in September.
“We want to do our part to help by providing all teachers with free personal mobility so they can focus on what matters most: their passion for education,” Chief Corporate Social Responsibility Officer Rebecca Hahn said in a written release.
The company says its scooters offer a socially distanced and traffic-free way to travel. It acknowledged the challenges of returning to school during the pandemic.
"The team at Bird wants to say thank you—and to help," the website reads.
