The scooters are a 'sharing' program, which means that the scooters are available at any time for all students, faculty, staff and visitors. Download the App, unlock, ride, park at designated areas and lock before walking away without any concern for ownership, maintenance or storage!

Additional Guidelines

  • CA law requires the rider to hold a drivers license or permit.
  • Do not bring scooters indoors
  • One rider per scooter
  • Leave one ear free of headphones while riding
  • Abide by all traffic laws

Scooters indoors: Per Student Housing Community Standards Spin Scooters are not allowed inside of any residential building on campus. Spin scooters are owned by Spin, not by individual residents, therefore there is no need for them to enter the building as they should be outside for public use. Individuals found in possession of such prohibited devices may be subject to conduct action.
