Starting this summer, riders of all abilities will be able to take advantage of Kent State University’s new bikeshare system provided by VeoRide, a micromobility share company based in Chicago. The dockless system is the first multimodal system of its kind in the nation, comprised of 100 pedal bikes, 68 e-bikes, 10 fat-tire bikes and two ADA-compli­ant handcycles. 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.

Rider Safety Tips

  • Check the bike before riding. Use the app to request maintenance.
  • Protect your head and wear a helmet.
  • Obey all traffic laws.
  • Follow traffic and stay in your lane to prevent accidents
  • Use hand gestures to let others know where you are going.
  • Stay alert and pay attention to your surroundings!

Park Bikes Responsibly

  • 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 or near the tree line.
  • Don't block benches, patios, fire hydrants, or other furniture.
  • Use the app to be sure the area is within the service area.
  • Don't block doorway or driveways with bikes.
  • Don't block cross walks or sidewalk traffic when parking.
  • Don't leave bikes on hills or the curb. This leads to safety hazards.
