Bike-sharing is finally here. Detroit Bike Share released more information about its program, dubbed MoGo
, launching later this month. The "Mo" in MoGo comes from Motown and Detroit's nickname as the Motor City.
The system will have 430 bikes at 43 stations throughout the city. Passes, which range from daily ($8) to annual ($80), can be purchased online, through the Transit App, or at stations. Users can also pay in cash at 7-Eleven, CVS, or Family Dollar with the app.
After buying a pass, users can ride a bike for up to 30 minutes with no additional charge. Bikes can be returned to any station.
"We are thrilled to introduce Detroit to MoGo," said Lisa Nuszkowski, executive director of Detroit Bike Share, in a press release. "Today's announcement continues the city's mobility evolution, providing Detroiters and visitors alike with more accessible options to move around the city."
Detroit Bike Share is a collaboration between the city of Detroit, Henry Ford Health System, and Health Alliance Plan.
Detroit Bike Share was recently featured in a Model D article about the present state of Michigan Avenue.
