Pico Electric Vehicles Give Bruins New Way to Get around Westwood

Westwood, Calif. – Nov. 9, 2020 – Commuting to and around campus just got that much easier, as Pico Electric Vehicles are coming to Westwood! As of today, Bruins can start zipping to and from campus with this convenient and affordable transportation alternative.  

Pico Electric Vehicles is a new, subscription-based service that allows UCLA students, faculty and staff to rent seated, electric scooters on a weekly basis. The service provides smart-phone enabled, e-vehicles that can be an even easier, more convenient commuting option.

“Commuting is a major part of life in Los Angeles, and we are proud to bring Pico Electric Vehicles to campus,” said Ari Baron, Director of ASUCLA Marketing. “These seated e-scooters will not only give Bruins a new way to get around Westwood, but also provide a more environmentally friendly option for local travel.”

Pico Electric Vehicles are noiseless, emissions-free and have a 30+ mile range before needing the next charge. A flat activation fee allows patrons to access them, and then a weekly subscription fee lets users keep the e-vehicles for as long as they desire. Each Pico e-vehicle subscription includes limited warranty, routine maintenance, roadside assistance as well as safety enhancements such as helmets and optional insurance coverage.
