About HOPR

HOPR’s parent company Cyclehop LLC, who also operate the Mobi by Shaw Go system in Vancouver, have partnered with campuses and cities across North America to deliver similar programs. They were selected through a competitive procurement-like process to operate on campus at no cost to the University.

HOPR is operating at UBC under a License Agreement with the University that lays out various legal, financial and operational requirements, including where and how HOPR bikes are used on campus. Over 80 designated bike share hubs have been installed across campus to make it easier for users to locate and park shared bikes, conserving bike rack space for other cyclists.

Dropbike Pilot

Dropbike’s one-year pilot providing bike share to the UBC Vancouver campus community ended in July 2019. Throughout the pilot, over 30,000 rides were taken on Dropbikes by a broad range of users, including students, faculty, staff and residents.

If you have questions about your membership or would like to report an issue, please contact the company through their app, or email support@dropbike.ca.
