Bike Share Coming to Tucson (Video)

Mayor Jonathan Rothschild announced yesterday that a new transit program is coming to Tucson in November. The tugo bike share program will bring in 330 bikes to be used in and around downtown and the University of Arizona.

The basic daily rate will be $8 for unlimited rides during the day, but the bikes will need to be parked every 30 minutes at one of 36 stations to avoid additional fees.

Tugo kiosks will accept major credit cards, and users will be able to buy daily, monthly, and yearly passes. A cash option also will be available through pay stations at participating retailers.

An app, Cyclefinder, also will be available for use when the program launches.
