VeoRide bicycles help students get around campus
Riverside, Calif. (Oct. 23, 2018) – The Associated Students of California Baptist University (ASCBU) has initiated the VeoRide bike sharing program that gives students an opportunity to rent a bike for a minimal fee.
Students at CBU have the option to rent one of the teal bicycles for 50 cents per 15 minutes or a $49 annual subscription, which provides unlimited rides for a year. Students can reserve bicycles up to 10 minutes before rental and pay using the VeoRide app. The app provides students with the location of all available bikes. Students can ride VeoRide bicycles anywhere on CBU property as well as off campus as long as they return the bikes to school premises.
Timothy Roe, ASCBU campus improvement committee representative, said ASCBU is interested in providing students reliable and affordable transportation.
“I think VeoRide is a great option especially if a student is running late for class or doesn’t live near their classroom,” Roe said. “Our main focus for ASCBU is to provide a place for students to address some of their needs with a representative so that we can look into getting [those needs] met.”
Last year ASCBU used a bicycle-sharing program called Spin that featured bright orange bikes. After the Spin company switched to using electric scooters, which are not allowed on campus per university policy, the ACSCU decided to team up with VeoRide to address this transportation need on campus.
