San Francisco-based e-scooter company Spin has doubled the number of scooters in its Dayton fleet just a few weeks after they debuted here, citing high usage. Spin deployed just over 100 scooters in the downtown Dayton area on August 21, and recently decided to expand that number to 200. Dayton Spin customers have ridden the scooters more than 11,000 times since the late August launch. On average, more than 90 new riders per day have tried the scooters, and the average distance ridden is roughly two miles per trip. Spin scooters are dockless and can be left anywhere. Spin has contracted with the Greater Dayton RTA to collect, re-charge, and position the scooters in tidy groups throughout the downtown area. Users download the Spin app on their phones to unlock and pay for use of the scooters. In Dayton, regulations prevent scooters from exceeding 15 mph and from being ridden on sidewalks.
