Plans are moving forward for a bike sharing system in Detroit that will include more than 40 stations in 10 neighborhoods.

Those involved in the effort announced Wednesday that the Detroit Bike Share system will be known as "MoGo." The "Mo" in "MoGo" is a reference to Detroit being the Motor City and the original home of Motown Records and its Motown sound.

Plans call for 430 bikes to be available for use starting in May.

Detroit Bike Share is an affiliate of the Downtown Detroit Partnership. The city is involved and it's sponsored by Henry Ford Health System and Health Alliance Plan.

People will be able to purchase passes and get more information about the bike sharing system online.
