Spin Scooters.

Two more companies are bringing hundreds of rental electric scooters to metro Phoenix cities.

On Friday, Lyft, the popular ride share service, launched its own scooter share program in Scottsdale and Mesa.

Mesa also has more competition as Spin, which is owned by the Ford Motor Company, also launched a fleet of scooters in the city on Friday.

This comes days after  Lime announced its scooters are leaving Tempe due to increased regulations.

Razor also recently announced it may leave Tempe as well unless the city changes its license agreement.
