CoGo for All

CoGo for All offers affordable, accessible, and fun transportation options for everyone, regardless of income. Our program allows those who qualify for certain state or federal assistance programs to sign up individually.


  • $5 Annual Membership
  • Unlimited 45-minute Classic bike trips (5¢/min after that) and 5¢/min bike trips*
  • Bikes available 24/7/365 throughout service area

*Ebikes may be parked at CoGo stations for free or any public bike rack in the service area for $1. Parking outside the service area and parking violations each incur an additional $25 fee. Parking violations include locking the ebike to itself, private property, trees, signposts, or any other structures as well as blocking pathways, sidewalks, or ramps.


CoGo For All is available to Columbus residents aged 18 and older receiving SNAP (WIC EBT and EBT), or a discounted utility bill.
