MoGo Offers Free Monthly Pass Beginning March 30
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic MoGo, Detroit’s non-profit bike share system, announced today that it is now offering its Monthly pass for free.
“These are challenging times for all of us,” said Lisa Nuszkowski, founder and executive director, MoGo. “Whether you are an essential employee who needs to get to work or are looking to add some physical activity to your day, MoGo is here to continue serving the needs of our community.”
Riders can sign up for MoGo’s free Monthly pass via the Transit app. No promotional code is needed. Additionally, all existing Monthly pass holders will renew this month for free. MoGo’s Monthly pass is good for 30 days and provides an unlimited number of station-to-station trips up to 30 minutes. Overage fees still apply to trips over 30 minutes.
Cities such as New York have seen a surge in bike-share ridership since the start of the crisis, as more people have opted to avoid enclosed spaces and use other forms of transportation to get around.
Under current health guidelines, bike riding is a great way to get exercise while maintaining a safe and healthy distance from others. MoGo encourages all riders to protect themselves by riding solo until the COVID-19 pandemic ends and to thoroughly wash their hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with a minimum of 60 percent alcohol content after riding.
To help keep riders safe, MoGo has added enhanced cleaning procedures to its routine bike and station checks. Handlebars and seats are thoroughly cleaned, as well as docking points, kiosk screens, credit card slots, and receipt dispensers. The MoGo team is regularly cleaning its vans, and any bikes that are in the warehouse for maintenance are thoroughly cleaned before returning to the field.
