The City of Pittsburgh’s new bikeshare program, POGOH, is launched today

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Another way to get around the city is now available.

POGOH, the city’s new bike sharing program, will offer 38 stations, 172 traditional pedal bicycles and 173 electric bicycles in various locations.

One difference between the Healthy RIde program and POGOH is that all bikes must be returned to an official station and locked in a dock. They cannot overflow a station and real-time bicycle availability at the dock can be found in the PBSC app.

“We hope Pittsburgh loves POGOH as much as Healthy Ride did,” said David White, executive director of Bike Share Pittsburgh. “This relaunch has been a labor of love for us and we are very excited to finally share it with our city.”

The new program will also offer flexible payment methods, including cash payments and payment options for those assisted by the government.

“We are determined to build the best bike sharing program for Pittsburgh,” White said. “Bikeshare is an important part of the mobility mix in our city; we are dedicated to making POGOH a reliable, joyful and fair experience for locals and visitors alike.”

Subscription plans will include an annual plan that costs $ 120 per year and includes unlimited 30-minute rides and there will also be flexible passes and pay-as-you-go pricing that will cost $ 3.50 every 30 minutes for pedal bikes and $ 5 every 30-minute for electric bikes.
