On Feb. 22, VeoRide will expand the bike share program, which launched in September 2018, with the addition of 150 E-Bikes to San Marcos and Texas State University.
Multiple events will be held on campus and around downtown by the city and university in the weeks following the launch to answer the public’s questions.
The teal-colored e-bikes will be available on the same VeoRide app that allows riders to access the pedal bikes. The cost to rent the e-bike is $1 to unlock and $0.15 a minute.
Like the pedal bikes, the new e-bikes can be ridden wherever desired; however, they will need to be parked in an appropriate location. Riders can pick up a bicycle from the closest bike rack or parking area as shown on the mobile app and return it to the nearest bicycle rack or parking area at their destination.
VeoRide e-bikes are designed for sweat-free pedaling, extreme durability, and the ultimate riding experience. The front-drive motor can assist riders to pedal up to 18 miles per hour and responsively adjust torque to match riding conditions, such as traveling up a hill.
The motor can run up to 68 miles on a single charge; VeoRide’s operations team will swap the battery when it needs to be charged.
Those new to the bike share program will need to download the VeoRide app to set up an account.
