Tugo is made possible through a partnership with the City of Tucson who secured federal grant funding for the bikes and stations. The City of Tucson selected Shift Transit to operate the system and PBSC Urban Solutions as the equipment provider. And Tugo would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors.
Tugo is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, with the exception of severe weather.
