“After five years of hard work, we’re thrilled to begin our operations in ten Detroit neighborhoods, providing yet another option for Detroiters to get where they need to go,” MoGo executive director Lisa Nuszkowski said. “It’s an exciting time for mobility in the city, and we’re proud to launch a system designed to serve a diverse range of people and needs.”

MoGo is offering several pass and pricing options including a daily pass for $8 and an annual pass for $80, both with an unlimited number of 30-minute trips.

“We are very excited to welcome MoGo as a part of the growing number of ways to get around Detroit,” said Mayor Mike Duggan. “The city supports MoGo’s commitment to providing bike share to all of Detroit’s residents.”
