Philadelphia Bike Share Feasibility Study Complete

A message from Bike Share Philadelphia:

The Philadelphia Bike Share Feasibility Study is complete.

A final draft of the study was delivered to the Mayor's Office of Transportation and Utilities in the waning days of December 2009, exactly one year after the deadline requested by a Philadelphia City Council Resolution in June 2008.
The study, to be made public in the coming weeks, is rumored to verify the viability of a Public Use Bicycle Program for the City of Philadelphia.
We are nearing the second anniversary of Bike Share Philadelphia's advocacy to reduce automobile congestion, reduce carbon pollutants, increase public transit use and increase the general population's health through more exercise with a Public Use Bike Program in our City. We need to once again ask Mayor Nutter to make Bike Sharing one of his priorities in the second half of his first term. It is his stated goal to make Philadelphia the most "Sustainable City in America." Bike Sharing is a highly visible public element that can be used to achieve this goal.


Please, write Mayor Nutter and let him know we need bike sharing to be a priority in the second half of his first term. Write him at Take action.
