Veligo bike rental (Véligo Location)

Published on

Since September 2019, residents of Ile-de-France have had access to the largest long-term rental service for eBikes in the world. The aim is to encourage the use of bicycles, especially for commuting.

What is Véligo Location? 

Véligo Location is a long-term rental service for eBikes from Ile-de-France Mobilités, set up last September.

It proposes the rental of an eBike for a period of six months and allows all Ile-de-France residents to try out an eBike for their daily trips, for home-work trips or to ride to a station.

The eBike has many features to make it a reliable, efficient and pleasant bike: front lighting, front basket, secure braking and an anti-theft device. Accessories such as a rear bag, helmet or baby carrier are also available as options, to adapt to individual needs.

5,000 additional Véligo eBikes and 500 cargo eBikes

As the Véligo Location service has reached 10,000 subscriptions (its entire initial fleet) an order for 5,000 additional eBikes will be activated in 2020 and the Véligo fleet will then reach 15,000 eBikes. In addition, and following this success, Ile-de-France Mobilités has decided to launch 500 Cargo eBikes.

Cargo bikes, which can carry up to a hundred kilos, are aimed at families who want to replace their cars and transport their children, or for business trips. Three models of cargo bike will be available: two-wheel carrier, long tail and three-wheel carrier.

Véligo Location, how much does it cost?

The eBike is offered to Ile-de-France residents on long-term six-month rentals, with three optional months, at a rate of €40 per month. This can be reduced to €20 per month with a subsidy from your employer. This price includes the rental of the bike and its maintenance! Once your order has been confirmed, you can collect your Véligo Location bike from one of the 250 collection points available across the region.
