Archived News Release: March 31, 2023 - ​The City of Ann Arbor will hold a “roll out" event for the city's first shared e-bike program on Monday, April 3, 2023, 1 p.m. at the Allen Creek Berm Tunnel bend at the Huron River. Mayor Christopher Taylor, city leaders and elected officials as well as representatives from e-bike company, Spin, will be on hand to talk about the new program. In addition, Spin will bring a small fleet of e-bikes for participants to test ride.

Members of the media or public who may wish to take a spin on the e-bikes should bring a helmet and will be asked to sign a waiver.

When: Monday, April 3, 2023, at 1 p.m. (weather permitting).

Where: Allen Creek Berm Tunnel at the bend facing the Huron River.

What: Spin will bring their e-bikes for demonstration purposes and short rides. Participants who wish to ride the bikes are encouraged to bring their helmets and will be asked to sign a waiver.

On March 20, 2023, City Council approved Resolution R-23-099 which amended our agreement with Spin to allow for the introduction and operation of 100 e-bikes. The public is expected to have access to these e-bikes through the Spin app starting the first week of April. These 100 e-bikes will complement the fleet of 400 e-scooters currently operating in Ann Arbor. The introduction of shared e-bikes fulfills a mobility strategy identified in the Moving Together Towards Vision Zero Transportation Plan. Learn about the plan at
