More Bike Share Deets!

Mayor Michael Nutter officially announced the name and corporate sponsor of Philadelphia's bike share program: Indego, brought to us by Independence Blue Cross. At the announcement, he rolled out a prototype bike - which features a handlebar basket, a feature not found on shared bikes in London and NYC. As previously reported on Plan Philly, riders will be able to start taking an initial count of 600 Indego bikes on trips to 60 bike dock locations across town sometime in April. Over time, the system is expected to expand to 180 locations with 1,800 bicycles. [Plan Philly]
