Phase 3 POGOH Expansion

Bike Share Pittsburgh is excited to announce that POGOH will be expanding its network to include an anticipated 53 new stations. POGOH is early in our timeline; stations will not be installed in 2024. As we receive equipment delivery information POGOH will share the installation timeline.

 

This "Phase 3" expansion includes many former Healthy Ride locations to help restore service to these communities, builds greater density and connectivity in some of our existing neighborhoods, and builds brand new connections in several new neighborhoods.

INTERACTIVE MAP

POGOH needs your feedback! POGOH's expansion team selected each location based on  a variety of factors including customer requests, returning former Healthy Ride locations, filling in coverage gaps, and prioritizing Justice40 neighborhoods. Grant funding requires that 51 of the new stations are located within the city limits, and that 2 are located within Wilkinsburg.

 

To provide feedback, click on any proposed station and complete the embedded survey. Each survey creates a unique response to that individual so please be sure to select correct station for your comment. General comments can be directed to hello@pogoh.com.

Phase 3 Expansion Plan

Station Planning

What Makes a Good POGOH Station?

You may hear us refer to “station density” and “connectivity”. These terms relate to how close stations are to one another. Isolated stations do not perform well because POGOH is designed as a network intended for quick trips. Below are some of the primary considerations we make when deciding on an ideal location for a POGOH station.

Footprint

Each station requires a minimum footprint of 50′ x 6′ for sidewalk, and 50' x 7' for on-street. While POGOH stations can be found on some sidewalks, most Pittsburgh sidewalks do not accommodate stations while allowing for the safe passage for pedestrians. When this is the case, POGOH considers on-road installation.

Sunlight

POGOH stations rely on solar power to maintain internal batteries. Locations that do not receive much sunlight due to urban or natural canopies are not ideal spaces for a station. Furthermore, stations cannot be located underneath infrastructure like bridges, parking garages or buildings as they require a strong cellular network connection.

Visibility

Stations that are hidden on side streets and away from pedestrian corridors do not see frequent usage. POGOH must be visible and convenient for optimal ridership and station success.

Utilities

POGOH stations cannot obstruct public utility lines or equipment including fire hydrants or manhole covers. We also take care not to obstruct bus stops, accessible parking spots, or loading zones.

We love to install electric stations whenever we can, so access to power makes for an ideal station!

Connectivity

Isolated stations are not thriving stations. Stations should be no farther than 1/4 mile from another station to ensure a POGOH station is always a short walk from where you are.

Open to the Public

While POGOH stations can be installed on private property with owner approval, all of our stations must be publicly accessible for community use.
