U-bicycle’s First Anniversary!

 

On Friday, September 28, 2018, U-bicycle celebrated our first anniversary and officially launched in Richmond; it has really been a substantial journey in supporting our communities by transforming our mode of transportation. 

During our first year of operation, there has been more than 17,000 registered users and over 60,000 recorded trips. Starting from only at the City of Victoria, U-bicycle is now operating at 8 cities and growing. We are now thrilled to announce our first expansion outside BC; we have been awarded the permit to operate in the City of Calgary. In the next couple of months, we plan to expand in Calgary, Oakbay, Langley, and Fort Langley.

 Here are some snapshots from the event:

We have faced many challenges, cycled many miles, and shared many stories together. Our journey would not have been possible without the enormous support of all of you. We have been truly fortunate to work with such wonderful cities and partners, and we look forward to continuing our relationship into the future.

Lastly, we dedicate this success to everyone who believes in our vision and mission that we keep dearly at heart —greening our world, one bike at a time.
