13 new cycles are in the fleet
It’s already been a year since MoGo launched Detroit’s first public bike share. Now, the group is adding options for riders of all abilities. The Adaptive MoGo bike share progam launches today—a first for the city and one of the first in the country.
The cycles will be available at Wheelhouse Detroit in Rivard Plaza instead of traditional MoGo bike stations. The new Adaptive MoGo fleet includes:
- Three upright cargo tricycles
- Two recumbent tricycles
- One in-line recumbent tandem
- Two hand tricycles
- Three two-wheeled tandems
- One side-by-side recumbent tandem
- One front loading trailer
The pilot program will run until October 31. Local nonprofit Programs to Educate All Cyclists (PEAC) will help train and promote Adaptive MoGo. PEAC’s goal is “to empower individuals with disabilities through cycling, active transportation and self-advocacy education.”
Adaptive MoGo offers two rental options:
- A Single Trip Passprovides two hours of ride time for $12, with each additional hour costing $8.
- An Adaptive Seasonal Passprovides unlimited two-hour rides on an adaptive MoGo for $30 through the months of May to October, with each additional hour costing $8.
“MoGo is designed to serve a wide range of people and needs, and the addition of adaptive bikes to our fleet reflects our commitment to inclusivity and accessibility,” said Lisa Nuszkowski, founder and executive director, MoGo. “We’re proud to make MoGo available to people of all abilities, as well as expand mobility options for people in Detroit.”
To celebrate its first anniversary, MoGo will offer free rides in Detroit on Wednesday, May 23.
