Ride MoGo for Free on October 1

25/09/2017

We’re celebrating our first summer in operation and Open Streets Detroit with a day of free rides!

 

 

 

MoGo will offer free rides on Sunday, October 1 to thank people for their support of bike share and help more people enjoy Open Streets Detroit.

 

“MoGo is helping transform transportation in the city, providing yet another option for Detroiters to get where they need to go,” said Lisa Nuszkowski, founder and executive director, MoGo. “We hope this one-day promotion will encourage more people to get out and get active, whether they are participating in Open Streets Detroit or looking for another way to get around town.”

 

The normal $8 fee for a Daily Pass will be waived on October 1. Charges will only apply for any individual trip that exceeds 30 minutes. Riders can avoid charges by docking a MoGo bike at any one of the system’s 43 stations before going over the time limit and taking another bike out.

 

How it Works

  • Interested riders can go to any MoGo station, which can be found on mogodetroit.org or by downloading the CycleFinder or Transit apps.
  • Insert a credit card, select “Purchase a Pass,” and follow the instructions on the screen, or use the Transit app by selecting “Purchase Pass.”
  • After completing transaction, pick any bike and type in a five-digit code issued when purchasing the pass on the keypad located on the left of each parked bike.
  • Ride for up to a maximum of 30 minutes at a time. *Fees apply if a rider goes over 30 minutes.
  • Return the bike to any station and take out another bike by inserting your credit card, or using the Transit app and selecting “I already have a pass,” then ride again!

 

Open Streets Detroit will temporarily turn parts of Michigan Avenue and West Vernor Highway into safe, open, car-free zones for local families and the community to run, bike, shop and play together on Sunday, October 1, from noon to 5 p.m. Open Streets Detroit is free and open to participants of all ages, and families are encouraged to attend.
