Auburn University is partnering with Spin, a leading micromobility company, to offer electric bike and scooter transportation for students, faculty, staff and visitors on campus starting Jan. 16.
The new modes of transportation offer an eco-friendly option for traversing campus, and they incorporate such safety features as “no ride zones” and “slow ride zones” at various locations. The zones are visible within a Spin mobile phone app that is used to book and pay for the use of the e-bike or e-scooter. and that can slow or redirect the e-bike or e-scooter involving “no ride” or “slow ride” zones.
Auburn’s agreement with Spin is for a minimum of three years and will launch Jan. 16 with an initial fleet of 100 e-bikes and 100 e-scooters that will be available for operation from 5 a.m. to midnight daily. Specific locations will be designated for where the devices should be parked on campus.
