SAN ANTONIO (November 15, 2019) – Today, the City of San Antonio announced that it will consider Bird as part of its ongoing dockless vehicles request for proposals (RFP) solicitation process. City staff will proceed with negotiations with Lime, Razor and Bird. Yesterday, as part of a corporate shift in its operations, Lyft announced that it would be withdrawing its dockless vehicles from the San Antonio market.
In response to Lyft withdrawing its dockless vehicle operations from San Antonio, City staff communicated with Bird, the next highest scoring firm. Bird agreed to a 1,000 permit cap and will be considered in the RFP process. This permit cap is consistent with the other selected operators, Lime and Razor.
City Council will consider staff’s recommendation at the December 12, 2019 City Council meeting.
