Media Coverage from UBC Veemo Launch
We officially launched Veemo to the public yesterday at UBC. Our whole team and the five Veemo velomobiles were all on-hand for the event, which drew a good crowd of reporters and onlookers on a typical rainy Vancouver morning. If anything, the rain proved to be a blessing in disguise, as the velomobiles were able to showcase their wet weather benefits. The event was a success, as we were featured on all the major Vancouver news stations (CTV, Global, CBC) and even on the front page of the Vancouver Sun.
Here are some highlights from our launch:

Proud to say two of VeloMetro's co-founders are UBC Engineering graduates! We're looking forward to seeing the positive impact Veemo has on campus and on the environment.
