Veemo has launched the world’s first shared velomobile fleet at the University of British Columbia campus. This fleet of five vehicles will validate the Veemo service before expanding to cities like Vancouver and others around the world. The fleet is accessible to students, staff, and other members of the public over 19 years old and older. Have a burning question about Veemo? It’s probably answered here in our FAQ!
WANT TO BE A UBC TESTER?
Our pilot is currently limited to a small group of early users, but we are adding new members every day. Tell us on Facebook why you want to be an early member!
Veemo velomobiles can be picked up or dropped off at one of 24 parking spaces around campus, marked by Veemo parking signs. The location of the parking spots can be found on your Veemo mobile app or while you are riding using the navigation screen.
UBC HOME ZONE
The home zone is the service area where you can ride Veemo, and encompasses the University Endowment Lands, between Chancellor Blvd and 16th Ave, and Marine Dr and Acadia Rd. The home zone boundaries are viewable below, on the online map, and through the Veemo app. For the duration of the UBC pilot, the vehicle must remain inside the home zone during your trip. If you feel we need to expand our home zone to a certain area, let us know!
Upon request from UBC, we have also implemented a restricted area, and a slow-zone area.
Red Zone: Veemo members are not allowed to ride through the red “restricted” area. This includes Main Mall and a section of University Blvd.
Yellow Zone: Speed is reduced to 10km/h in this heavy foot traffic area.
Note: These hours of operation will be expanded in the future.
Monday to Friday: 8:00 AM - 7:00 PM
