Electric Scooter Trial Rides In Fayetteville

NWA Daily

Scooter provider Veo chose Fayetteville to be the next city to participate in the pilot program for its new electric scooter

  • Try it: What’s new about the scooter you ask? It has a seat, as well as some other additions. As part of Veo’s pilot program, you can ride on the new scooter with a seat tomorrow, Dec. 4, and Dec. 7 for free at the intersection of the Razorback Greenway and Dickson Street.
  • Yay or Nay? In 2021 alone, Fayetteville logged over 200k rides on Veo scooters, so the company deemed Fayetteville a reasonable place to ask for feedback on their new model. Feedback will go to city officials and University of Arkansas staff as well.
