DETROIT (WXYZ) — MoGo Detroit, the bikeshare program in the city, will be offering its monthly pass for free in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Riders can sign up for MoGo's free monthly pass through the Transit app or on MoGo's website. No promo code is needed.

“These are challenging times for all of us,” MoGo Founder and Executive Director Lisa Nuszkowski said in a release. “Whether you are an essential employee who needs to get to work or are looking to add some physical activity to your day, MoGo is here to continue serving the needs of our community.”

The pass is good for 30 days and gives an unlimited number of station-to-station trips up to 30 minutes. Overage fees will still apply for those trips over 30 minutes.

MoGo is encouraging riders to protect themselves by riding solo and thoroughly washing their hands with soap and water and using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

The company has also added enhanced cleaning procedures to its routine bike and station checks. Handlebars and seats are cleaned, as well as docking points, kiosk screens, credit card slots and receipt dispensers. MoGo is also cleaning its vans and any bike in the warehouse for maintenance.
