What's Happening in:  All over South Philly 

Indego expanding to Broad and Passyunk, Bok Bar and more

The Indego Bike Share program, now entering its third year, has been a huge success. So much so, that they’ve finally agreed to include some spots in our neck of the ‘hoods.

City of Philadelphia Managing Director Mike DiBerardinis announced the second major expansion of the Indego bike share program, including 14 new stations as well as several major program upgrades set to launch this summer.

“Indego bike share is a fantastic example of how the City of Philadelphia is moving forward,” said Managing Director DiBerardinis. “With Indego, we are making sure that Philadelphians from all walks of life have access to high quality, sustainable, and healthy options for getting around, getting to work, and getting some quality time with friends and family.”

The expansion is also funded by a $800,000 grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Commonwealth Financing Authority.

Also announced was an additional grant from the William Penn Foundation. Indego Bike Share has been made possible in part by a $930,000 grant from the William Penn Foundation. The grant will support the programming, planning, and supportive infrastructure to create an engaged, equitable and sustainable bike share program. – Indego

    This is great. I am an Indego member and use it frequently. Its time south philly got some much needed additional stations.

    That otherwise-worthless plaza at Broad & Passyunk will make a perfect Indego megastation!

      Ironically when the “gateway plaza” was being designed they said it was impossible to incorporate an Indego station.
