Spin E-Bikes Come to Campus
Georgia Tech Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) is collaborating with Spin and the City of Atlanta to allow rentable e-bikes on campus. Starting this week, Spin will begin staging e-bikes in multiple locations on campus.
“This new collaboration will support the expansion and accessibility of bicycling options on campus,” said Aaron Fowler, director of transportation with PTS. “In conjunction with the many other bicycling initiatives and resources we have on campus, this will be a great opportunity for the community to have another way to get around.”
The partnership includes incentives to Georgia Tech users if you sign-up with your "gatech.edu" email address when registering. Riders may park the e-bikes throughout campus, ideally at the nearest bike rack or Spin's designated locations. Spin will offer riders discounts off future rides for returning bikes to designated parking locations on campus. Additionally, discounts will be offered to Tech users for e-bike trips that originate from campus.
Spin e-bikes will be placed at these five staging locations each morning, fully charged and ready for campus use.
Near the entrance to the Curran parking deck on Turner Place
Techwood Drive near Ferst Drive
Techwood Drive across from Bobby Dodd Stadium
Ferst Drive in front of the CRC
Near the entrance to the Area 4 parking lot at Ferst Drive/State Street
Trips starting on campus are $1 to start, 20 cents per minute. Riders who park in one of the designated parking points on campus get a 50-cent ride credit on their next ride.
To start a ride:
Find a nearby device using the Spin app.
Scan the QR code on the device.
Acknowledge safety and rider rules.
Unlock the device.
Use the device to your destination.
Avoid parking a bike or scooter in a way that blocks doorways, sidewalks, or travel routes that could create a hazard for others.
Wear a helmet while bicycling and scootering. Discounted helmets can be purchased at the PTS customer service center for $12.
If you are new to bicycling or scootering in Atlanta or want a refresher on safe riding practices, Georgia Tech offers a 12-minute online safety class for free.
