“Bird” Public E-Scooter Test - Caleta de Fuste

Updated: 21 hours ago

Here's Steve's first reaction and rough review.


These “Bird” scooters can be found all over the resort of Caleta de Fuste and are available to ride through a phone app.


In short, the idea is great but the scooters probably need to be more rugged to cope with the less-than-perfect road surfaces around the resort! There are scooter hire companies in town offering more robust looking machines but I haven’t tested these. Let me know if you would like me to!


Prices: Total was €7.80 broken down below.

Startup charge: €1

plus per minute charge: 34 minutes x 20¢ = €6.80

Distance travelled: 8.6km


Probably could have covered more distance for the price but I spent a few minutes stationary while I changed camera angles. 20¢ per minute charge still applied because I didn’t end the ride.


TAKE YOUR TIME. BE CONSIDERATE TOWARDS PEDESTRIANS. OBSERVE THE RULES. ALWAYS WEAR A HELMET.
