3rd business to add its scooters to Indianapolis streets

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The city’s love-hate relationship with scooters just got a third competitor.

The Department of Business and Neighborhood Development announced Wednesday that Spin will join Bird and Lime on the streets. 

Scooters made their first appearance in the city last spring. The city at that time did not have regulations for scooters, and Bird and Lime voluntarily pulled their scooters off the streets while the city drew up rules. By September, the scooters were back and the city had created a law to keep the scooters from being ridden on sidewalks and trails. The law also regulates how scooters can be parked.

Spin’s website says it was founded in San Francisco in 2016. It has “dockless mobility systems” in cities and campuses across the nation.
