September 15, 2015 Leave a comment
We are pleased to announce that City of Philadelphia received a one-year, $1.5 million grant from the William Penn Foundation to expand Indego, the City’s bike sharing program, in 2016. The grant will support installation of 24 new stations, adding to the current system of 72 stations, in neighborhoods around the city. Station locations will be selected with emphasis on increasing the accessibility of City parks and waterfronts, and with the input of Philadelphia residents.
William Penn Foundation’s grant focuses on making some of the city’s most valuable natural and recreational assets—rivers and public parks—easier to enjoy and visit. By providing funds specifically for station expansion in underserved communities, this grant enables the City to build upon its vision for Indego as a bike share system accessible to Philadelphians of all income levels.
