Scooters Added to Ride-Share Program in Cache Valley

Utah Public Radio Tuesday, May. 29, 2018


Spin scooters are now available to rent in Cache Valley. The ride-share company partnered with Aggie Blue Bikes to launch the pilot program lasting through mid- July. This gives the company an opportunity to gauge the level of interest in the community and potentially make the program permanent in Cache Valley. “It’s going to be a fun thing to watch,” said Carter Moore, a mechanic at Aggie Blue Bikes. ... They work the same way as the bikes do. You download the Spin app, locate a nearby scooter with the app’s GPS system, and scan the QR code on the scooter to start your ride. Once you’re done, you lock the scooter and you are automatically charged based on the length of your ride. Unlike the spin bikes around town, the scooters are slightly more expensive to rent and are powered electrically. “They have to stay on campus, so they won’t be commuting tools," Moore said. ... Cache Valley’s push to alternative transportation highlights issues for bike and scooter commuters.
