How is an Indego electric bike different from a classic Indego bike?

How do I find and check out an Indego electric bike?

You can locate Indego stations that have electric bikes by checking the station map on the Indego website or in the Indego app. Stations that have Indego electric bikes docked at them will show a green lightning bolt symbol above the station icon.

You can use your Indego key fob, phone number look-up, or credit card look-up to check out an Indego electric bike, the same way you check out any other Indego bike.

How fast does the Indego electric bike go?

Indego electric bikes provide pedal assistance up to speeds of 17 miles per hour. The motor in the electric bike only provides assistance when you pedal.

How long does the battery last?

The battery life of an electric bike depends on many factors including terrain, riding style, temperature, the weight of the rider, and any cargo being transported. On average, a full charge will allow Indego electric bikes to travel about 30 miles before they need to be recharged.

Does the bike still work if the battery dies?

If the battery on an electric bike dies, the motor will stop providing pedal assistance. The lights on the bike will still function and you will still be able to shift gears, dock, undock, brake, and pedal like normal. The motor does not add any noticeable drag when turned off.

What do I do if an Indego electric bike runs out of battery while I’m riding?

Indego electric bikes show you on their display how much total battery life remains. Be sure to check the battery life before checking out an Indego electric bike. A bike that shows two or more bars of battery on the display is good to ride. If the bike runs out of battery, you can either finish your ride or dock the bike at the closest station and undock another bike.

How old do I have to be to ride an Indego electric bike?

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation requires a minimum age of 16 to operate an electric-assist bicycle. Therefore, riders must be at least 16 years old to check out an Indego electric bike. Minors need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian at least 18 years old during the ride.

On what part of the street should I ride an Indego electric bike?

Just like other bicycles, you are permitted but not required to ride in designated bike lanes.
