VeoRide + Arkansas = a match made in Hog Heaven. We feel right at home with this bicycle-friendly duo that is the University of Arkansas and the City of Fayetteville. In fact, the League of American Bicyclists crowned both entities with a Silver designation for bicycle friendliness, evaluated on the effectiveness of engineering, education, encouragement, enforcement, and evaluation. And by the sight of all the bike lanes, paved trails, and the Razorback Greenway, we couldn’t agree more!
In August, we made our relationship with the U of A and Fayetteville official with the start of the ride share featuring 340 custom-branded bikes including 50 e-bikes. Reflecting the true partnership of this operation, the fleet will feature Razorback colors and logos of the university, city, and Experience Fayetteville. The bikes will be rolled out in phases, to give the community time to get acclimated to the program and carefully manage operations.
We can’t wait to see this ride share take off, supporting the University’s and City’s goals of offering transportation alternatives, making biking accessible to more people and improving the quality of life for everyone who visits or lives in the community.
Outside of Arkansas, you can find VeoRide bikes in the following locations: Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Texas. Additional markets are coming on soon. Like us on Facebook to learn the latest!
