In Santa Monica, where Bird is headquartered, City Council members voted to cap the number of scooters on city streets while officials craft longer-term regulations.
Users got the word via app Wednesday morning: "Please do not ride or drop in this area", said the message, which included a pink-shaded map of the Plaza.
Plaza general manager Meredith Keeler first said in anemailed statement that because the Plaza's streets are public, the city "was within its rights to make the decision to allow Bird to operate on the Plaza without involving our management team".
The Plaza's management said the Bird ban is because of safety incidents that prompted several complaints.
The decision came just days after the city announced an agreement with Bird to allow them to operate no more than 500 scooters. Los Angeles City Councilman Paul Koretz asked officials last week to take "all available measures" to outlaw the scooters within the city. The spokesperson said it's not uncommon for Bird to proactively determine a no-ride zone and no incidents have been reported to Bird or the city.
Since the interim operating agreement was signed last month, the city authorized Bird's request to add 250 more scooters.
As far as distance is concerned, the scooters can go up to 15 miles on a single charge.
The service works through the Bird smartphone app, where riders can locate scooters.
