Our Veemo velomobiles left UBC on Friday April 13, 2018.
From beta testing to publicly launching, we’ve certainly come a long way thanks to all the support from UBC and our awesome members. Overall, the Veemo UBC Pilot has been a great success and we’ve learned a lot from it. It’s now time to focus on building a bigger and better Veemo service.
We’d like to thank everyone involved with helping make our Veemo Pilot such a success. UBC really has been a living laboratory, giving us the freedom to explore the concept of using a shared fleet of electric-assist velomobiles for urban transportation. We have received constructive and invaluable member feedback over the past year, and we look forward to implementing what we’ve learned in our next Veemo launch. A very special thank you goes out to the UBC Parking & Access Services staff, Faculty of Applied Science, Campus and Community Planning, our early beta testers, and our current members. Our success is because of all of your support!
What happens next?
Veemo’s elite team of engineers will now be working on our first commercial fleet production toward a launch in Vancouver. As a Veemo member, your account (and any free minutes you might still have) will be waiting for you when the Vancouver fleet is ready for prime time. When we have a launch date, you’ll be among the first to know!
