MoGo Detroit Joins DivDat’s Metro Detroit Local Area Payment Network
Bikeshare Service Adopts DivDat Bill Payment Kiosk to Better Serve Cash-Paying Customers
DETROIT, Nov. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Diversified Data Processing & Consulting, Inc. (“DivDat” or the “Company”), announced today that MoGo, a Detroit-based nonprofit organization that offers “bicycle-sharing” in Detroit and southern Oakland County, has joined DivDat’s Detroit Payment Network, and can now accept cash payments for bike rentals, on any of DivDat’s 126 Detroit area cash-accepting bill payment kiosks.
“Joining the DivDat Payment Network is key to MoGo better serving the portion of our Detroit customer base who may not have access to traditional banking services – people who don’t have a credit or debit card to pay for a MoGo,” said Adriel Thornton, Executive Director of MoGo. “It’s important that we’re able to extend bike rental services to cash-paying customers. DivDat’s Bill Payment Kiosks, and joining their Payment Network of other Detroit-area billers, is key to our being able to accept cash, provide greater convenience to our riders, and stay true to our mission to provide a convenient and fun way to get people moving and get them where they need to go – regardless of their banking status.”
MoGo’s bike share platform consists of over 650 bikes at 78 stations across six Metro Detroit cities, and continues to grow. Riders can purchase a pass, then find a station and take a bike. Paying for daily, monthly, or annual passes is available via the Transit app, in addition to paying cash on any DivDat Bill Payment Kiosk. MoGo’s bikeshare program has grown in popularity and is considered part of Detroit’s transit system. MoGo bike rentals are available in any season, 24-hours per day, seven days per week, 365 days a year.
“We’re pleased to welcome MoGo to the DivDat Payment Network and look forward to providing the organization with the ability to address a larger portion of their customer base,” said Jason Bierkle, President & CEO, DivDat. “MoGo is already doing important work. Providing additional access to Detroit bike renters who may be unbanked or underbanked is an important next step in advancing financial equity and inclusion. We applaud MoGo for better serving their cash-paying customer base and encourage more corporate billers and nonprofits to do the same.”
