PHILADELPHIA cyclists, rejoice!
City Council's Transportation and Public Utilities Committee approved a bill yesterday that would pave the way for a bike sharing program in Philadelphia
The bill, introduced by Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown, now moves to Council for a full vote.
"Bike sharing will bring Philadelphia to the next level of bike friendliness, sustainability and put us on par with tourism and hospitality destination cities across the world," said Reynolds Brown.
If passed by Council, riders will be able to use bikes at one of 60 stations throughout the city beginning in spring 2015.
The stations would be located from the Navy Yard to north of Temple University, and from the Delaware River to 52nd Street.
