Parking and Transportation Services offer new programs to serve the University community
City of Fort Collins and Colorado State University Parking and Transportation Services Partner in E-Bike and E-Scooter Sharing Program – Spin – bringing e-bikes and e-scooters to the available to visitors, students, faculty and staff on campus.
Spin will operate daily, except between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m., and electric scooters and bikes will be parked at several key Transfort bus stops and stations.
Thanks to Spin, the partnership offers several innovative options:
• Spin will provide adapted bikes for people with disabilities and older members of the community. You can request a suitable bike (tricycle, recumbent trike, or hand bike) through their website, by calling Spin customer support, or by emailing [email protected] Spin staff will deliver the device to the location requested by cyclists and cyclists can rent the adaptive bikes free of charge for an extended period.
• To support low-income residents, Spin also offers the “Spin Access” program for eligible residents who wish to benefit from reduced rates by providing proof of income or enrollment in city, state or funded programs. federal government such as SNAP / EBT, Health Premier Colorado (Medicaid), TANF, WIC or HUD Housing Choice Vouchers. Several cash payment options are also available for unbanked users. For information, visit spin.app/spin-access.
Spin’s launch in Fort Collins follows an electric scooter pilot program between the city, CSU and Bird. This program ended on May 31, 2021, and its success led the City and the CSU to issue a call for tenders (request for proposals) for a more permanent supplier. Spin was selected as a result of this process. Fort Collins’ previous bike sharing program, Pace, ended in May 2020 because its parent company went out of business.
Starting this year, Parking and Transportation Services introduced a new hourly parking system called Mobile Park, providing contactless parking payments for students, employees and visitors on campus through an easy-to-use mobile app.
The old hourly parking app, WayToPark, is no longer valid for on-campus parking. This new partnership with ParkMobile offers 24-hour customer service, lower transaction fees for parking on CSU campuses, and is available in many locations across the country.
ParkMobile is available for iPhone and Android devices.
