How We Indego: A Guide to Philly’s New Bike Share
Philly’s first bike-share program called Indego is officially in motion! Six hundred bright blue bikes are docked across 60 stations all over the city, waiting for riders to hop onboard. And with even more stations expected in the coming years, the future looks even brighter for our new city-cycling system.
Indego is for everyone!
Need a fast and efficient way travel to (or from) Amtrak’s 30th Street Station? Grab a bike and go! Indego makes for a great vehicle to get you from home to work and back again.
Welcome to the City of Brotherly biking. If you’re excited to take in some of Philly’s legendary landmarks like Independence Mall and the Art Museum, Indego’s your way to go. Riding across town lets you glimpse all of the significant sights en route from one historic neighborhood to the other.
For students at Penn, Temple, Drexel and other schools, Indego is a quick — and cheap — lift without having to store a bike in a tiny apartment or carry it up several flights of stairs.
If weekend excursions are your speed, try taking Indego to spots like Spruce Street Harbor and Philly’s first outdoor roller-skating rink at Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest. Or, get your fitness in with a ride down the scenic Schuylkill River Trail.
