ABOUT SPIN

SPIN is North America’s leading bicycle-sharing company that operates a station-less bicycle-sharing system, which uses a mobile app for reservations. The SPIN bicycles are orange-colored bikes equipped with onboard GPS units and cellular modems. Rides cost $1 for every 30 minutes. Bicycles are unlocked using a mobile app that scans a QR code on the bicycle. Since the SPIN bicycles are stationless, they can be parked anywhere within the city at designated landscape/furniture zones on sidewalks. SPIN’s ground operations team will place SPIN bicycles in an orderly fashion curbed on sidewalks at least six feet wide and at/or near bike racks and bike corrals. The company will ensure that bicycles are not obstructing pedestrian or motor vehicle traffic. SPIN users and the public can report bikes obstructing the public right of way 24/7 via the website or the app. SPIN will then dispatch a ground operations member to deal with bikes reported as obstructing the public right of way.
