Indego bike share expands, installs more docking stations in West Philly

June 13, 2017

New Indego bike-share station near 40th and Woodland.

Indego, Philadelphia’s bike share program, recently turned two years old and has just announced more docking stations around the city, including several in West Philly/University City.

Here are the new Indego station locations in the area:

• 40th and Woodland
• 38th and Spruce
• 38th and Market
• 30th Street Station East

One of the main criticisms of the Philadelphia bike-share program when it launched in 2015 was its availability in more socially and racially diverse neighborhoods and accessibility to lower-income riders. Last year, the program introduced a new equitable pricing plan and more ways for low-income residents to pay for the service, such as Pennsylvania ACCESS cards.

Over the past year, the program added new docking stations in such neighborhoods as Spruce Hill – at 43rd and Chester, Walnut Hill – at 48th and Spruce and 46th and Market – and West Parkside – at 1575 N. 52nd Street (see Indego station map here).

    A sizzling idea for a scorcher of a summer. I buy anything endorsed by P. Newman

    This is lovely but so much of the neighborhood is desperate for one to be at 50th or 52nd and Baltimore. There is space! There is need! Why no bikes?

    We need bike-share stations at 46th & Baltimore and 49th & Baltimore.

    Would love to see a station at 50th and Baltimore or 48th and Baltimore — there is plenty of space and definitely a community desire. I’m not sure 38th and Market is a big improvement when there was already one at 40th & Market?
