Just a few months ago working from home may have seemed like a distant dream. Recent global events have changed the way many of us work and may work in the future.

E-bike and E-scooter Share
Shared mobility like e-bike and e-scooter share is a public transportation option that complements transit, supports our climate change goals, and makes it easier for many people to complete trips when they need to take them. Spin operates e-bike and e-scooter share in Fort Collins.
