Please join us for a dinner presentation on the topic of "Urban Transportation: Green Innovations and Technologies" featuring a presentation by Kody Baker. His presentation will be on green innovations and technologies and products designed for urban transportation. Kody will also detail the innovative product and service that VeloMetro has developed, called Veemo. It is a one-way vehicle sharing network based on their in-house developed fully enclosed, electric-assist velomobile.

If you work, live or play in the city and want flexible personal transportation without the usual torment of urban travel, sharing services liberate you from traffic congestion, the need to have a driver's license, inactivity, exposure to the elements, and the cost of operating a car.

Please read full description below for details.
