Cedar Rapids Bike Share System Adds Scooters

Starting August 30, the Cedar Rapids bike share system will add a pilot program featuring electric scooters. These are owned and operated by VeoRide, the same company who supplies and maintains the e-bikes. The pilot program will consist of 30 scooters, which will be located in downtown, NewBo, and Czech Village, along with the campuses of Coe College and Mount Mercy University.

Residents can rent a scooter through the same system used by the e-bikes:

  1. Download the VeoRide mobile app for free
  2. Create an account
  3. Scan the QR code on any scooter to begin a ride

Scooter and e-bike pricing are the same:

  • $1 to unlock
  • $0.15 per minute (the fare ends when you lock your scooter)
