Smart, sustainable, and affordable transportation options are important to New Rochelle’s future, so I’m delighted that the City is partnering with VeoRide (Veo) to launch a new shared mobility system of e-scooters and bikes.
Veo is providing 200 e-scooters and 30 bikes at strategic locations around the City. Riders can download the Veo app on their smartphone and scan the QR code on the equipment to unlock the bike or e-scooter. The usage area is viewable on the app, and extends along North Avenue from New Rochelle High School to Pelham Road, including the downtown and Transit Center, as well as popular parks like Davenport, Hudson, Five Islands, Lincoln, Feeney, Stephenson, and Flowers. The system comes at no cost to the City. Bikes are $1 to unlock and five cents per minute. Scooters are also $1 to unlock and 39 cents per minute. The City will work closely with Veo to ensure a smooth roll out, with the possibility of expanding the system in the future. This press release has more.
Take advantage of this new opportunity to explore our community, access services, enjoy our growing cultural scene, eat at one of our restaurants, shop at one of our many small businesses, or just have fun.
