Indego Bike Share e-bike pilot, Philadelphia, PA, 2018
5 minutes Date Launched: Nov 8, 2018 Date Ended: Jan 8, 2019
Indego Bike Share, a partnership between the City of Philadelphia and Independence Blue Cross, has launched a two-month electric bikeshare pilot. As of November 8th, a select number of pedal assist e-bikes have joined Indego’s existing bike fleet and are available for use throughout the city. Compared to the standard blue bikes, the electric bikes are white and can help riders travel up to 17mph while they pedal. During the pilot, there is no additional cost for renting one of the e-bikes, which can be borrowed via the Indego app. After completing a trip, the bikes should be returned to one of the Indego docking stations. The City hopes that this new bikeshare pilot will offer residents and visitors an affordable, efficient way to get around.
