Here’s a copy of our May 2017 newsletter. To stay updated with VeloMetro and Veemo, sign up to our mailing list.


We’ve been hard at work and have some exciting news to share.

Development

The first Veemos have landed at UBC!

Phase 1 of our Veemo Pilot Launch is underway. VeloMetro has teamed up with UBC Parking to help identify potential parking spaces and provide feedback from their daily Veemo rides. We’re enthusiastic about the partnership as they are the first members to have extensive use of the Veemos and are having a blast riding them all around campus.

We’ve launched the Veemo webpage! Have a gander at www.rideveemo.com.
An upcoming newsletter update will contain an invitation to be among the first to register for Veemo memberships! Stay tuned…

Events

Veemo made a recent appearance at the BC Tech Summit where our team fielded questions from thousands of interested participants. The experience was gratifying, offered great exposure, and we appreciate having been invited to the BC Tech Summit two years in a row.

VeloMetro is set to make an appearance at this year’s ElectraFest held at Concord Pacific Place on July 15, 2017. We’re also going to be featured at the 2017 FutureFest Toronto in September.

VeloMetro Team

VeloMetro is excited to welcome three new staff members to the team as we scale up operations for the UBC Pilot. Courtney and Kisub will be lending a hand on mobile app and website development, while Christine will be aiding the mechanical team.

Media

VeloMetro was featured in Metro Vancouver last week! You can read Amy Logan’s article here.

We were  featured on Discovery Channel’s Daily Planet with Alan Nursall which aired on April 17, 2017. Unfortunately, Bell Media doesn’t post their clips online. Let us know if you saw the segment!

If you haven’t already seen the video produced by Autodesk in conjunction with Dezeen, it’s well worth a watch. Check it out below! The interior of the Veemo has progressed a lot since this was shot in the fall, so we’re excited to create a new video shortly to show off our final pilot fleet velomobiles!

We look forward to hearing about your first Veemo experience!
