RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – Another way to rent Scooters is coming to the Triangle and Charlotte in April with ride hailing service Lyft and scooter provider Spin teaming up to add the service to the Lyft app in 60 U.S. markets.

Lyft and Spin rolled out the service first in Nashville on Thursday.

Raleigh-Durham and Charlotte are among 13 markets targeted for launch next month.

Spin notes that it was “instrumental in crafting the world’s first mobility permitting system that is now used around the world.”

The scooters will be available for rent through the Lyft app.

“With our bikes and scooters now in 14 U.S. cities, Lyft has made strides to improve people’s lives with the world’s best transportation,” said Caroline Samponaro, Lyft vice president of Transit and Micromobility Policy, in the announcement. “Working together with Spin allows us to expand access to micromobility and serve more people in more areas, all in the Lyft app.”

Lyft noted that riders “will see Spin scooters as an option when they search their destination in the Lyft app. To see all available scooters, riders can tap the scooter icon at the bottom of the screen, and nearby scooters will be populated on the map. A Spin scooter can be unlocked via the Lyft app by scanning its QR code or entering the scooter ID number.”

Other markets on the launch list include:

  • Phoenix, Ariz.
  • Detroit, Mich.
  • Cleveland, Ohio
  • Pittsburgh, Pa.
  • Salt Lake City, Utah
  • Providence, R.I.
  • Fort Collins, Colo.
  • Ann Arbor, Mich.
  • Kansas City, Mo.
  • Memphis, Tenn.
