A blast from the past or a glimpse into the future?
Knoxville is one of the most recent cities to receive scooter-share programs called Spin and VeoRide. According to Spin, they are “transforming cities and communities by offering accessible, affordable, and environmentally-friendly forms of personal mobility.” Both of these speedsters can be rented through an app created for iPhone and Android. You simply scan the QR code on the scooter to pay and unlock the device, and then the app charges per minute of riding. These scooters offer Knoxvillians a new way to commute, get to class on the University of Tennessee campus, and much more. By downloading the apps, you can see a map of the scooters located closest to you. Riders should be aware that there are quite a few rules and regulations involved in the rental. If scooters aren’t your style, bicycles are available through Pace, which works in a similar way. The bikes even include a basket, making it convenient for quick errands. For information on where scooters and bikes are permissible and other safety rules, please visit spin.app, veoride.com, and ridepace.com.
