Most San Joseans have gotten used to seeing Lime, Bird, and Bay Wheels sharing the road. E-scooters + bike shares are a trend that seem to be sticking around — and getting bigger. 📈

Meet Veo — the new, sustainability-driven e-scooter company that officially launched in San Jose in late August.

The seated Cosmo model allows riders a greater sense of control + stability, while also increasing accessibility for those who cannot stand for long periods. 🛵

Rides cost $1 to unlock + $0.39 per minute, but to celebrate the recent launch, San Joseans can get a $5 credit on the app through the end of September using the code: RIDESOBAY.

Another cool discount? Locals who receive federal, state, or city benefits may be eligible for the Veo Access Plan, which costs $5 per month. 💸
