The plan is for customers to be able to use the skateboards on the Avenida Reforma and Avenida las Américas bicycle lanes. The price for unlocking a unit will be $0.5 and per minute will be $0.13.

Sergio Plaza, manager of Wayfree, told that "... we will offer more competitive rates to make it the fastest and cheapest way to get around. Micro-mobility is a success story in cities around the world that allow more efficient mobilization without polluting the environment."

Plaza added that "... Initially the units will be installed at the disposal of users in areas such as shopping centers, buildings and residential areas and then redefine the locations according to the areas of greatest demand that reflects the application."

Bird Inc. offers scooter micro mobility services in over 100 cities in North America, Latin America and Europe. Guatemala City would be the first Central American capital in which it will start operating.
