KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City has reached an agreement with rentable-scooter company Bird to allow it to continue operating in the city. 

The agreement allows Bird to keep 500 scooters operating in KC. In the past, Bird has faced resistance from other cities, but KC leaders decided to work with the company instead

To ride, you download the app and scan your driver's license. It will show the nearest-available scooter to your location. It costs a dollar to get started and then .15 cents a minute after that.

The scooters travel up to 15 miles per hour.
