Meet the Company

Headquartered in San Francisco, Spin is one of the leading micromobility companies and a unit of Ford Mobility. We currently operate dockless electric scooters on campuses and in cities across North America and Europe. Spin has been recognized for launching the first stationless mobility program in the United States and was instrumental in crafting the world’s first mobility permit system.  

As a technology company that powers individual mobility for the benefit of all and strategically collaborates to reshape policy and redesign urban life, our mission is to create a world full of 15-minute cities—and to bring those cities to life by moving people freely through their streets.
