Indego manager Arron Ritz joined CBS3 to discuss the details.
“In honor of the fifth anniversary of Indego, we have a promotion,” Ritz said. “It’s a $5 monthly pass, so it’s all you can ride for a whole month. We have a separate rate for those who use a Pennsylvania Access Card, that’s $2.50 a month. It’s simple to use, all you do is go to the Indego website.”
Indego wanted to recognize their five years in the business and felt this was a great way to give back to the community.
