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.
