Ford wants in on the scooter trend

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Ford wants in on the scooter trend. The auto company has bought a start-up called Spin.

Spin is much smaller than rivals Bird and Lime, which say they've completed 10 million rides in just one year.

Spin is only in 13 cities at the moment.

Ford plans to expand that to more than 100 cities over the next 18 months.

GM announced something similar with electric bikes last week.
