Spin provides dockless electric scooters in more than 60 markets in the US, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Charlotte, and Miami. Their regulatory team led the nation’s first stationless mobility permit system with the Seattle Department of Transportation.
It’s also the micromobility arm of Ford. The company prides itself on putting riders’ safety first, working closely with local governments, and scaling its fleet responsibly.
Head of Spin Europe, Felix Petersen returns to the Tech Talks Daily Podcast to discuss the launch of e-scooter trials across the UK. Almost six months have passed since the trials were announced, with Spin successfully launching several public-hire e-scooter schemes around the country.
Felix also discusses Spin’s European e-scooter strategy, Key learnings from the successful e-scooter trial, E-scooter usage trends in the US and Europe. We also talk about how to build a genuinely sustainable transportation solution and the future of micro-mobility.
I also learn more about Spin Valet that allows people to call a micromobility scooter from their phone, in the same way, they would an Uber or Lyft. In combination with Spin S-200’s front and rear cameras, GPS technology allows Spin to precisely locate each scooter. If needed, Tortoise’s team of remote operators can safely relocate the vehicle at a slow rate of speed (2–3 mph).
