VeloGO is no more in the capital region — for now

By Alison Mah, Ottawa Citizen, June 22, 2019

Bike-share service VeloGO is bidding an abrupt goodbye to the capital region.

“Dear riders, thanks for your dedication and support over the last four years,” VeloGO Canada tweeted Friday night. “Because our contract with the NCC has expired, we will not be returning this season. We are sad to miss out on our favourite time of the year, but this is not goodbye. We hope to see you next year!”

The bike-sharing business launched in July 2015, when VeloGO rolled out its 300-bike fleet in central Ottawa and Gatineau.

In 2014, the NCC agreed to give CycleHop, the Miami-based company that owns and operates VeloGO, free access for five years to 25 NCC-owned locations for docking stations.
