Free Rides for Teachers to Start the School Year

August 27th, 2020

This year, millions of teachers and families are struggling to work through the academic challenges posed by COVID-19. The team at Scoot wants to say thank you—and to help. 

That’s why we’re offering our Free Rides for Teachers program throughout the month of September. Now educators in San Francisco can experience a clean, traffic-free, and socially distanced way to get around, whether they’re commuting to class or picking up supplies for online learning. 

“We’re all facing a ‘new normal’ this academic year, and at the center are the educators who’ve been given the enormous task of reimagining both online and in-classroom learning,” said Bob Walsh, Government Partnerships at Scoot. “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.”

The new program offers teachers up to two free 30-minute rides per day and is valid from September 1 through September 30, 2020. To sign up, simply email together@bird.co with your teacher ID or teaching credentials and we’ll get you enrolled asap.
