Dr. Begazzi studies transportation patterns in electric-assist trike pilot

Civil Engineering Assistant Professor Alex Bigazzi and his students are using the data from these pedal and solar powered rental vehicles to look at how alternate forms of transportation change the way we move. Working with the Veemo pilot project happening across the UBC campus, Dr. Bigazzi wants to see if the app-activated electric-assisted tricycles will have an effect on reducing established transportation patterns, particularly car use. For the full interview with Dr. Bigazzi and more about the Veemo beta test, check out the article on the CBC.
