Shared e-bikes may be coming to Ann Arbor
New shared e-bikes could soon be added to the list of shared vehicles in Ann Arbor. WEMU’s Taylor Pinson explains.
The City of Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan already have an agreement for some 400 dock-less scooters for public use.
The newest agreement with the‘Spin’ micro-mobility company would add some 100 e-bikes for shared rental in the city. The e-bikes, or electric bicycles, are motorized with an electric motor to help cyclists with propulsion.
The Spin e-bike targeted for Ann Arbor would be able to go up to 20 mph and has a front basket for carrying small cargo.
If the plan is approved by city council, the new e-bike service in Ann Arbor could begin this spring as a pilot program.
