How did the City pick SPIN?

In light of reduced capacity on buses due to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions and the end of a bike share service for the upcoming academic year, Texas State University began negotiations with Spin to deploy electric scooters as a means of augmenting available transportation options for students. Such a deployment on campus, however, would necessitate allowing the use of scooters on city streets as students travel to downtown businesses and other locations around the city. The City viewed this as an opportunity to conduct a pilot program with Spin to evaluate the impact of electric scooters through the end of the University’s Spring semester.  The pilot program will be used to assess infrastructure limitations and public safety concerns associated with the use of scooters in the city. Formal request for proposal processes would follow the pilot program if the City and the University decide to move forward with a permanent scooter program.
