Officials in St. George hope to keep e-scooters long-term after a six-month hiatus because. When the program began in 2019, the introduction was successful. A year later, however, the company managing the scooter fleet did not renew its contract with Spin, the e-scooter company.
When the partnership began, Spin, a unit of Ford Motor Company, provided more than 200 scooters to St. George. Boston-based Zagster picked up the management and maintenance duties. When Zagster failed to renew its partnership with Spin, St. George officials were left trying to determine how to proceed.
