Spin Cancels Pilot for Scooters at USU

Herald Journal Wednesday, May. 30, 2018

Spin, the California-based company known for the orange rental bikes recently introduced to Logan, has abruptly concluded a pilot program for electric scooter sharing it was conducting at Utah State University. Fifteen scooters had been on campus since last Friday, but after university officials told them that school policy prohibits the use of motorized scooters on any walkway, Spin put the brakes on the program. “These issues were brought to our attention today, and because we are always sensitive to the concerns of our university and city partners, we took immediate action to end the scooter pilot,” stated Ted Sweeney, Spin’s campus partnership lead, in a prepared release. ... Spin’s decision came the same day representatives were on campus to get members of the community interested in the scooters, capable of speeds up to 15.5 miles per hour. ... Sweeney said the pilot program was intended to be “a short-term, small experiment to understand demand for scooter-share in a campus setting.”
