Customers can use Spin’s app to access the vehicles across the campus between 5 AM and midnight every day. The bicycles and e-scooters can operate at a maximum speed of 20 and 15 miles per hour, respectively. Geofencing technology also designates certain parts of Auburn University’s campus as no-ride and slow-ride zones. Customers can pay for their micromobility rentals through the following rates:
Individual ride: $1 plus $0.30 per minute;
