For now, if you open the app to ride a Bird electric scooter in the Plaza, you'll see it's blocked out.

Bird already operates in more than 20 cities across the country, including Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio.

The question of who made a decision to pull the plug triggered a several hours of confusion Wednesday.

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".

"Representatives contacted city officials about Bird's presence in Plaza". 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.

The city just signed an interim operating agreement with Bird on July 31 to allow the company to do business in Kansas City.

"They throw them everywhere: in the ocean, in the sand, in the trash can", said Robert Johnson Bey, a Venice Beach maintenance worker who regularly comes across scooter parts on the Venice Beach boardwalk, Speedway and adjoining alleys. Bird employees use Global Positioning System to retrieve the scooters, recharge them and place them in designated "nests" for the next users. Riders can rent a scooter through an app on their smartphone and drop it off anywhere in the city when they are finished.
