Why are the E-Scooters gone?

Spin is pausing E-Scooter operations in Phoenix in response to decreased ridership caused by COVID-19.

We hope to have Spin back in Phoenix soon.

Program Overview

Shared electric scooters (e-scooters) are now available in downtown Phoenix! City Council unanimously approved a six-month pilot program for the use of e-scooters in Downtown Phoenix in September 2019 and recently renewed the program to continue for another six months. The pilot will test the viability of e-scooters as a mobility option and has been designed to maximize safety and minimize sidewalk clutter. 

Here's what you need to know about the pilot program:

  • The pilot program will launch September 16, 2019 and will last for one year (the initial program was approved for six-months, but extended for an additional six).
  • The program will be evaluated by City Council after three months, six months and after its conclusion.
  • The pilot will allow e-scooter companies (vendors) with a permit to deploy rentable shared electric scooters at specific locations within the boundaries​. The scooters can be rented through mobile applications or through the vendors directly.
  • E-scooters in downtown Phoenix will have a boundary area and no-ride zones. E-scooters can not operate outside of the boundary or in no-ride zones.
  • E-scooters must be parked in designated parking areas and can not be left outside of the areas. Parking areas can be found on the scooter apps and by zooming in on the program boundary map
  • E-scooters must be ridden on the street or within bike lanes - no riding on the sidewalk!
  • E-scooter vendors will have to apply and meet specific requirements to obtain a permit to be a part of the program.
