Ford-owned Spin to Expand Dockless E-scooter Services Internationally, Launching First in Germany and Setting Sights on France and the Uk
The micromobility company promises to launch only with the permission of cities and bring an eco-friendly and sustainable first-and-last mile transportation solution to Germany and other European cities this year
SAN FRANCISCO—FEBRUARY 27, 2020—Spin, the micro-mobility unit of Ford Motor Company that crafted the first stationless micro-mobility permit in the United States of America, today announced its international expansion plans. To further bolster its presence internationally, Spin will apply for the upcoming Paris e-scooter share permit in France next month and will explore opportunities in the United Kingdom including private partnerships and pending e-scooter share trials.
With over 20 exclusive partnerships in the United States of America, Spin is a trusted partner to over 60 cities and 25 universities, developing a long-term affordable and reliable alternative to commuting for communities. Spin also works with private companies, advocacy and local community groups to create a genuine transportation solution that addresses the needs and challenges of each city and college campus.
Last year, we increased the number of U.S. cities in which we operate by 600 percent. We look forward to working collaboratively with cities and universities throughout Europe to bring the joyful, safe, and seamless Spin experience to the international community.
