Approved Electric Scooter and Electric Bike Vendors

UCLA has a contract with Bird to provide shared rental electric scooters and bikes to the campus community. Shared rental e-scooters and e-bikes from the approved vendor can ride through campus roads and park in appropriate areas. Unapproved vendors can ride through campus roads but will be impounded if parked on campus.

Please note that the approved vendor restriction only applies to shared rental e-scooters and e-bikes. Personally owned e-scooters and e-bikes are allowed on campus.
