Moovit puts a Spin on e-scooter hire in UK and Europe

New deal allows 'first and last milers' to use Moovit app to find and book Spin e-scooters.

By Graeme Roberts

Moovit app users will soon be able to find e-scooters operated by Ford unit Spin in some European cities.

Spin, Ford’s micromobility subsidiary, and Intel owned Moovit are working together in three European countries. This deal enables app users to find e-scooters in 23 cities in the UK, Spain and Germany.

“Moovit users can now opt to complete the first and last mile leg of their journeys with Spin e-scooters that offer a covid-safe way of getting around instead of driving private cars, the two companies said in a joint statement.

“Spin’s recent rider survey showed that 82% of its riders in the UK choose to use e-scooters for short journeys instead of driving alone at least once since the launch of the scheme, reducing the number of cars on the road in the area and decreasing carbon emissions across the region.”

Moovit has 1bn urban users in 112 countries and offers its service in 1,500 cities across Europe and the Middle East.

Spin is available in 20 cities in Europe.

Moovit shows where an e-scooter is available nearby, including how long it will take to walk there, as well as battery range. Users are then directed to the Spin app to hire and pay for the e-scooter.
