City of Philadelphia Seeks Proposals for Bike Share System


The City of Philadelphia is pleased to offer the opportunity to firms with proven bicycle sharing technology to partner with the City to provide a Bicycle Sharing System for Philadelphia.  Of the ten largest cities in the United States, Philadelphia has the largest proportion of cycle commuters.  Already, more than 10,000 Philadelphians bike to work and thousands more trips occur each day for transportation and recreation. The market opportunity for bicycle sharing in Philadelphia is significant with the City’s flat terrain, mild weather, mix of high density residential, commercial, and educational development, along with a housing stock that leaves many potential cyclists without the room to store a bike.  The proposed service area is home to more than 430,000 residents and more than 400,000 jobs. Philadelphia’s Bicycle Sharing System is perhaps the last high ridership system left to be launched in North America and we invite interested parties to register and download the RFP from the eContracts Philadelphia web portal.

Access the RFP by registering with the eContracts Philadelphia and searching for New Contract Opportunities in the Procurement Department.
