If you want to try the new Tugo Bike Share program that launched last month, you can do so for free every Tuesday this month.
The free rides are sponsored by Caterpillar. Like a normal day pass, the free promotion allows people to take a bike for unlimited 30-minute rides from station to station free of charge for 24 hours.
Since the launch on Nov, 17, Tugo bikes have taken more than 1,000 trips, including one that traveled 106 miles in El Tour de Tucson. Tucson 12 recently produced videos (linked below) documenting Tugo's progression from the official announcement of its impending arrival to launch day and a video about how to use the new system.
