A Holiday Thank You Letter

December 15th, 2020

To our entire Scoot and Bird community,

I hope this note finds you in good health and, for those who are able, safely surrounded by loved ones.

This holiday season, it’s more important than ever to show support for one another and focus on the people and things for which we’re most grateful. While 2020 may have challenged us all, it has also given us a profound reason to appreciate what we have and to find hope in what’s to come.

It is in this spirit that I’d like to offer my sincere gratitude to each and every one of you. To our riders around the world, thank you for continuing to choose sustainable, socially-distant micromobility to get you where you need to go. Your gesture may seem small, but its positive impact on our planet is truly remarkable.

To our city and community partners, thank you for the trust and partnership you show us every day. Your commitment to working alongside Scoot and Bird to help make transportation more equitable and cities more livable is humbling, and it inspires us to never stop improving.

Finally, to the hundreds of our Scoot and Bird teammates and colleagues spread across the globe, thank you for the work you perform and the sacrifices you make day in and day out. This year has been far from easy, but your resilience, passion and commitment to our mission have enabled us to thrive in the face of adversity. I remain convinced that Scoot and Bird have been blessed with the strongest, most capable team in the world.

2021 will undoubtedly bring its own challenges and opportunities, and when it does we will be ready to face them together to continue the important work of getting more people out of cars and onto safe, sustainable micro-EVs.

Until then, please stay safe and enjoy a healthy, happy holiday season!
