Veo has expanded its scooter service to Rutgers University in New Jersey
Veo, a scooter and e-bike company, says it is expanding its service to Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
The Chicago-based company, also known as Veoride, said it would install 300 Astro electric scooters on school campuses starting in the fall of 2020.
"This epidemic presents a huge challenge for all public transportation operators, and we are especially pleased to work with Rutgers to demonstrate how electric scooters can complement public transportation by reducing bus congestion and providing a sustainable way to travel for individuals.Veo CEO Candice Xie said in a statement.
In June, Veo expanded to Atlanta, bringing its regular electric scooters and a seated electric scooter called the Veo Cosmos to the city.
Veo, 3, launched the Cosmos in January, saying it was designed for short Shared trips similar to electric scooters and bicycles.
The company says it has "dozens of cities and universities across the country as partners in its ride-sharing program, and is adding other cities and campuses every month."
