UBC LAUNCH FALL 2017
VeloMetro has launched a Veemo pilot fleet at the University of British Columbia this fall. The service will serve up to 65,000 students, residents, and UBC affiliates in easily moving around campus. Veemo velomobiles have plenty of space for bags and heavy books, and are fully enclosed to keep the rider and cargo warm and dry. VeloMetro is pleased to be collaborating with a number of UBC academic groups on a variety of technology, business, and transportation projects.
VeloMetro plans to expand its service to the Vancouver urban core in the near future. Global expansion is being considered for cities that are looking for sustainable and active transportation alternatives. Veemo velomobiles will also be available for purchase commercially in the future.
CLASSIFIED AS A BICYCLE
Veemo is a sophisticated, enclosed, electric-assist, smartphone-connected vehicle, ideal for urban and suburban areas. Veemo velomobiles are human-powered, with electric assist to help on hills and over long distances. The vehicle shell protects the user from harsh weather and the cargo space provides practical functionality. Veemo velomobiles replace automobiles, not bicycles, with their all-weather use, lockable cargo space, and anti-theft provisions.
NO DRIVER'S LICENCE
This healthy, active, and environmentally-friendly mode of transportation is available to anyone over the age of 19. Veemo is legally classified as an electric-assisted cycle, so no driver's licence is required. It will give access to the 50% of adults under 25 who don't have a driver's licence. Users will be able to sign up online and ride within minutes without having to wait for motor vehicle driver record checks or an access RFID card.
IT'S VEEMO TIME
Veemo provides a clean transportation alternative and is offered at an attractive price compared to any conventional carshare. Future operating zones include both urban and suburban cores. Our unique vehicle design will position our service as a highly visible consumer brand. Cities love this sustainable transportation option!
