We are excited to partner with Veoride to provide a bike share service for Kent State University and the surrounding Kent Community. Riders of all abilities are able to take advantage of Kent State University’s new bikeshare system provided by VeoRide, a micro-mobility share company. The dockless system is the first multimodal system of its kind in the nation, comprised of 180 pedal bikes, 68 e-bikes, 10 fat-tire bikes and two ADA-compliant hand cycles. VeoRide pedal bikes will be available for rent either by a pay-as-you-go arrangement or through a membership plan, discounted for students and Kent State faculty and staff. Riders can locate a nearby bike via their smart phone and unlock the joy of bike riding for a quick commute or simply a ride to enjoy the outdoors.
Step 1: Find a ride.
Use the VeoRide app to find an available bike near you. Tap the pin to select a bike
Step 2: Scan to unlock
Scan the bike’s QR code or enter its ID to unlock it. Enjoy your ride!
Step 3: Lock it, Leave It

DO NOT PARK BIKES ON THE GRASS!
A bike rack is the safest place to park. If the rack is full, you can park right next to it.
Park in the furniture zone of the sidewalk (where benches, lamps, & the tree lines are located).
Don’t block benches, patios, fire hydrants, or other furniture.
Use the app to be sure the parking area is within the service area.
Don’t block doorways or driveways with bikes.
Don’t block cross walks or sidewalk traffic when parking.
Don’t leave bikes on hills or the curb.
The Veoride team employs local staff who work hard to resolve any issues brought up by our community members including redistributing bikes left in undesired locations, adding more bikes to high demand areas, and making sure all bikes are in good working order.
