Bike Share Program In Detroit Is Expanding Into These 5 Suburbs

The rankings were compiled by taking the cost of a single-day use compared to the average hourly wage in each city. MoGo made it to the...

MoGo Bike Share Tops 100,000 Rides Since Rolling Out

When the new bike share program serving the city of Detroit launched, MoGo, the criticisms were swift and ranged from “they’re all going to get stolen” to “no one is going to care.” But according to new data put out by MoGo, an affiliate of the Downtown Detroit Partnership, the service has hit some key milestones over the five months since launch. * There have been more than 100,000 MoGo bike share trips taken * 2,000 Monthly and Annual passes have been sold * 17% of those passes sold wer...

For Day To Day Usage, MoGo Bike Share Beats The QLINE Hands Down

When it comes to practicality, the QLINE streetcar has been a disappointment. Our team is pretty bike- and walk- friendly, and will take the bus if the timing makes sense. We have contributors who live near the QLINE and the MoGo stations, and others who live near bus lines and use them (in the suburbs, too). When both opened earlier this year, we had multiple debates over which service was going to come out on top. It was evenly split between bike share lovers and believers in the power o...

Pedaling To The Pints: A Tested Road Map For A Detroit Bike Share Bar Crawl

Although bike-sharing initially arrived in downtown Detroit several years ago for members of the locally notorious “Family of Companies” in the Gilbert empire via Zagster, it was not widely available to the masses until the launch of MoGo last month. MoGo is Detroit’s first widely available bike sharing service with 43 stations across the city. All early indications are that it is a success, with the court of public opinion deeming it a much more customer friendly and viable option (at least f...

Detroit’s New Bike Share Opened Today. Is MoGo For You?

Daily Detroit stopped by the New Center today for the launch of the new MoGo Detroit bike sharing system. It opens with 43 bikes and 430 stations spread across a wide swath of the city, from Clark Park in southwest Detroit, to the New Center, out to West Village on the east side. One of us got to ride a MoGo bike back to one of the downtown stations. The three-speed bikes are sturdy, built to take a beating and have a remarkably smooth ride. Seeing as how Detroiters are still trying to wrap...

Detroit’s bike sharing system has been a much-talked about addition to greater downtown Detroit’s transportation options. We’ve walked through how to use the system before. It’s a public bike sharing system where you pay by the half hour (a variety of other passes are available) to use a bike to get around the downtown area. Today the map went live ahead of the system’s official launch on Tuesday, May 23. It reveals that the system will reach as far west as Clark Park, as far east as West Vi...

Detroit’s much anticipated bike share program now has a name and a target launch time. It’s going to be called MoGo.

There will be 430 bikes and 43 stations throughout ten neighborhoods when the project launches before the end of May. An exact launch date was not given. “We are thrilled to in...
