Veo’s electric scooters and peddle bikes are back on campus after being removed for winter.

The Santa Monica, California-based micromobility company has 130 standing scooters and 30 seated scooters and 20 bikes in its UToledo fleet, all of which are available to rent from designated pickup spots across campus via a smartphone app and can be piloted across campus or across town.

“Our priorities remain portability and ease of use, with the goal to enhance student access to the UToledo campus and the Toledo city limits,” said Brian Kulpa, executive director of auxiliary services.

To start a ride, users scan a QR code with the Veo app. Riders pay $1 to unlock the scooters and bikes, and another 35 cents per minute for the standing scooter, 40 cents per minute for the seated scooter and 5 cents per minute for the bike. Scooters and bikes must be returned to an approved parking area at the end of the ride.

Veo launched its program at the University in August 2021.
