GoSGV is a new regional e-assist bike share program organized by San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments (SGVCOG) that will offer an accessible and affordable transportation option to the San Gabriel Valley through shared-use electric assist bicycles.
South El Monte is the first city in the San Gabriel Valley to launch the bike share program. Starting with 30 bikes in the City of South El Monte, GoSGV will expand over the next year to 840 bikes stationed at bike share hubs in half of 31 cities and unincorporated community in the San Gabriel Valley.
The program is made possible through the SGVCOG) supported by a $4.554 million state greenhouse gas reduction grant and operated by Gotcha, a national private shared-mobility firm.
Electric-assist bicycles are similar to regular bikes but have pedal assist which help riders by boosting their pedaling efforts, making it easier to climb hills, travel longer distances and assist individuals with physical limitations that prevent extended cycling. GoSGV bikes can be returned to stations, or elsewhere for a small fee. Gotcha is responsible for ensuring that e-bikes are maintained at stations.
