We’re Still Looking for Abandoned Bikes

An abandoned bicycle with yellow removal tag.

At the beginning of this month, the Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities along with the Streets Department and Philly 311 finished a successful campaign to clear many of the abandoned bicycles from city streets.

Since keeping Philadelphia streets clean and safe is an ongoing project, we will make another sweep of city streets to remove abandoned bicycles.  However, before we can make that sweep, there needs to be a sufficient number of abandoned bicycles called in to 311.

When calling an abandoned bicycle in to 311, be sure to report:

–         The nearest street address

–         What the bike is attached to (street pole, tree, etc.)

–         Color and condition of the bicycle

If there’s an abandoned bicycle on your street you’d like to see removed, please call it in to Philly 311 and it will be put onto the list of bicycles to be removed.  Like before, all of the bicycles removed during the next sweep will be donated to local charities.

Thanks for your help.
