CSU and the City of Fort Collins are finalizing the contract that will bring e-scooters to Fort Collins in mid-October.

Earlier this year we shared with you that the city transportation planner was having meetings about which scooter company to partner with. While the scooter vendor has remained unidentified, you will begin seeing 250 scooters around the choice city and another 250 at CSU in mid-October.

To rent a scooter you will need to download a app to your smartphone and connect your payment information. The Coloradoan is reporting that the cost will be $1 to start the ride and "25 to 30 cents" for each minute after that. They say scooters can be left anywhere and the vendor will collect them each night using GPS and return them to the right place.
