You might have noticed motorized rental scooters left in a variety of places in Columbia, including curb ramps and driveways.
Kyle Rowe with the Spin scooter company says the next user of its service rates the parking job of the last user.
“We use this data to target users who consistently get ‘thumbs down’ ratings, reach out to them with a reminder with the parking rules. If it’s consistently non-compliant we can even put a relocation fee on their trip if they do it again, or terminate their membership for a short time.”
The Columbia City Council on Monday night approved a one-year deal with Spin. The company is bringing a 500-scooter fleet. It is the same company operating in Jefferson City.
It will operate under basically the same deal that Columbia has with Bird scooters.
