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 micro-mobility arm of Ford. The company prides itself on putting riders’ safety first, working closely with local governments, and scaling its fleet responsibly.
As the company expands across Europe and recently launched in the UK, I wanted to learn more about how technology is enabling Micro mobility to deliver a convenient, clean, and cost-effective travel choice instead of buying a car or using ride-hailing services that increase congestion and pollution.
In the US, Spin has seen its ridership bounce back faster than public transit, competing with both walking and driving. It makes sense, wanting to be out in the great outdoors than cramped next to a man spreader on the tube or train.
Felix Petersen, head of Europe at Spin, discusses the current deployment of e-scooters in the UK and Europe. We also talk about using tech to build sustainable transport solutions and how E-scooters’ usage patterns have risen since Covid-19.
