What if I don't have a smart phone, a credit card, or need a reduced rate?highlight_off

If you don't have a credit card, you may purchase Spin Access ride credit in person with cash at 409 Delozier Dr, Unit B, Fort Collins, CO 80524, Monday - Friday 10 AM - 2 PM. The minimum purchase amount is $10.

If you don't have a smartphone, you can purchase ride credits in person. You can then use that ride credit via the SMS system (text message) to unlock and ride.

You can use the Group Ride feature to rent up to 5 e-scooters on the same account. (This feature is not yet available for e-bikes.)

How do I request removal of an e-bike or e-scooter?highlight_off

To request that Spin remove an e-scooter or e-bike:

What are the rules?highlight_off
  • E-bikes and e-scooters are limited to 15 mph.
  • E-scooters are geofenced out of paved trails, except Mason Trail from Prospect to Laurel (this segment is under Streets management, the rest under Parks management). The motor will cut out and an alarm will sound if you are on a geofenced trail.
  • E-bikes and e-scooters are not allowed on soft-surface or dirt paths like those in natural areas. 
  • E-bikes and e-scooters are geofenced out of certain areas, like the dismount zone in Downtown Fort Collins and the Foothills Mall property.
  • E-bikes and e-scooters are not allowed on Transfort city buses. Transfort passengers may bring personal scooters onboard buses if the scooter can be folded. The scooter must remain folded while on board the vehicle and placed in front of the passenger or under the seat. Scooters must not block aisles, exits or otherwise empty seating. They must also not encroach into other passenger areas or personal space.
