Electric scooters available for public rent will make their appearance in Wenatchee starting Monday.

Bird Scooters won a contract with the city last month to offer shared E-scooters for use around town.

Users pick up a scooter at downtown kiosks, and pay with a phone app.

The city earns 5 cents from each transaction. Up to 100 scooters may go into service in the coming months.

It’s a one-year pilot program; after that, the city can choose whether to extend, modify, or withdraw from the agreement.
