The City of Sherbrooke unveiled its new collection of electric bicycles and scooters on Wednesday as a part of the launch of a new initiative called, “Velectrik Sherbrooke.” From now until October, and then again in the summer of 2022, the nine bicycles and two “mobipode” scooters, will be available for free to members of the population or visitors to the area who sign up for them in advance.
“The electrification of transport is a priority objective,” said Marc Denault, Sherbrooke City Councillor and President of the Société de transport de Sherbrooke (STS), explaining that the program is something of a free trial for the city to help make decisions about future investments in electric vehicles for public use. “It is very important for us that the people of Sherbrooke get the chance to decide what they prefer for their mode of transportation.”
