Indego plans to expand Philadelphia bike-share system by 30 stations

Bicycle share program invites riders to choose their new stations

PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Ridership numbers for Indego, the city’s official bike program, have soared over the course of the pandemic.

That is why their fleet of bikes is expanding in 2022.

Philadelphians can get ready to see 30 new stations and 400 new electric bikes.

Those stations will be dispersed into West and South Philadelphia to start.

This is part of a 5-year expansion plan to double the size by 2026. By then, Indego leaders have committed to reaching more communities within South, West, and North Philadelphia.

The goal is to ultimately have a network that reaches all corners of the city, from Germantown to the Navy Yard, and from Cobbs Creek to the Delaware River.

The new stations will start arriving in early spring of next year.

Indego leaders are taking recommendations. Station suggestions can be submitted by clicking here.
