After a brief hiatus, Spin scooters have returned to the streets of Dayton.

Spin removed the popular dockless scooters on Feb. 1, and the company said it wanted to use the opportunity to evaluate ridership trends and its deployment strategy.

The scooters were back last weekend.

Consumers use an app to unlock and ride the devices, which can go up to 15 mph.

On Monday, Spin’s app told users that the company is closely monitoring the coronavirus in the communities it serves and is taking extra measures to disinfect scooters frequently.

Spin also encourages riders to visit the CDC website to learn more about the best preventative measures.

Spin scooters were so popular in Dayton that the company roughly doubled its local fleet.

The company shuts down rides for winter hibernation in some of its cold-weather markets.
