Detroit adds adaptive bike share options

DETROIT (BRAIN) — On the anniversary of its MoGo bike share program, Detroit is rolling out a pilot program with a variety of adaptive cycles for riders of all abilities. It’s one of the first major cities to offer an adaptive cycle share program.

“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, the founder and executive director of MoGo. “We’re proud to make MoGo available to people of all abilities, as well as expand mobility options for people in Detroit.”

MoGo has purchased 13 cycles for the program, including upright cargo tricycles, recumbent tricycles, an in-line recumbent tandem, two hand tricycles, three two-wheeled tandems, one side-by-side recumbent tandem and one front loading trailer.

Instead of checking out adaptive cycles at a MoGo station, the adaptive cycles will be available at Wheelhouse Detroit, which has partnered with MoGo on this pilot program. Wheelhouse will maintain and service all adaptive MoGo cycles.
