Scooters have arrived in Wichita! Spin Scooters deployed their 500 units through the downtown area.
“We are ‘Wheely’ excited to welcome these scooters to Wichita. We are rolling along with improvements to make Wichita a destination while working to improve quality of life with amenities like scooters that will make Wichita more attractive place to call home.” - Mayor Jeff Longwell.
Today’s rollout featured one of three companies bringing scooters to the area. As of this morning, there were 500 electric scooters deployed throughout the downtown area. Two more companies will be bringing more scooters in the coming weeks and months with the final total being over one thousand scooters for Wichitans to enjoy.
As for new laws and rules associated with the scooters, users will receive these while using the app to rent the scooter their first time. Additionally, signs will eventually be posted at locations where the scooters can be commonly picked up.
