I started before I even officially moved to Detroit. After I accepted a job at Wayne State, my wife and I used MoGo to check out campus and look for a place to live.
Why do you use MoGo?
I use it for pretty much everything! Commuting, grocery shopping, coffee runs, and exercise once in a while. I’ve also taken students out on MoGo bikes to work on a mapping project in Midtown.
What are the biggest benefits MoGo has provided?
It’s nice to have dependable access to a bike share wherever I go instead of worrying about how much it costs to park or where to leave my bike.
How did you commute before using MoGo?
We’re a one car family, so I typically used to ride my personal bike or bug my wife to drop me off.
What would you improve about MoGo?
I wish there were a cheaper way to check bikes out for longer rides. Without a station nearby, it’s tough to get around Belle Isle in half an hour.
How has MoGo changed your experience in Detroit?
MoGo has helped me see Detroit as a place to inhabit and explore rather than just a place to drive through.
Where would you like a new station?
I’m excited about the expansion up towards the Livernois corridor, and it would be great to have a few stops that bridge the gap to the current stations.
On top of everything else, I didn’t expect the MoGo bikes to be so fun to ride!
