Bike Share Station Planning Report

2014-December-StationPhasing_corrected

A bike share station planning update report is now available at http://www.phila.gov/bikeshare! (Click the big grey button labeled “Station Survey Report.”)

Earlier in the fall, we collected over 10,500 text-message, online, and paper surveys in response to 95 potential bike share locations. At two all-day Open Houses in November we spoke with over 400 people about the results, and we’re pleased to post the full update online.

The report describes bike share site planning and community outreach efforts and also details site-specific survey findings. The bulk of the report consists of one page snapshots of the feedback we received about each potential location. You’ll also see a map (visible above) showing the general locations that we’ve decided are most promising for Phase 1 of bike share (60+ stations in spring 2015), and those that are likely to appear in future phases, starting in spring 2016.

The map is NOT a final station map. We are continuing to investigate alternative locations using suggestions submitted via surveys and in consultation with community, public, and private partners. We are working to identify additional sites that didn’t appear on the initial map (e.g., near Suburban Station). A final station map will be available in spring 2015.
