If you absolutely must go somewhere this weekend, it appears that one of your only remaining options will be your own two feet: The Indego bike share network announced that it is taking its stations offline at 6 p.m. Friday in anticipation of Winter Storm Jonas. SEPTA is suspending most services stating at 4 a.m. Saturday.

Although Indego operates all year long, we take necessary precautions to protect our riders and equipment,” the statement read. “Safety is our top priority, and stations will be powered down until the snow has stopped falling and conditions are safe.  Once a station is down, you will no longer be able to remove a bicycle, but you will be able to dock a bike.”

Anyone with questions or concerns may call Indego customer support at 844-446-3356 or email support@indego.com.

Indego will post updates to its website, Facebook page and Twitter feed to keep users updated on the status of the system and when service might be restored.
