Tugo Bike Share Startup 2017
In launching Tugo Bike Share, Tucson will be joining more than 50 American cities that have a bike share program. Approved by the Tucson City Council in June 2016, the bike share system will be operated by Shift Transit, with equipment and technology provided by PBSC Urban Solutions. In 2017 alone, Shift Transit customers have taken more than one million rides via the company's bike share systems across North America.
