Philadelphia is courting corporate sponsors to foot the $10 million to $15 milion bill for building a bike share program. Who will it be? We posed the question on Facebook. Here are some suggestions from NewsWorks readers.
They may be reducing their footprint in the city, but what about their tire tread?
2. Urban Outfitters
One good trend deserves another.
The “evil empire” can get in good with citizens who can’t get Fios where they live. One reader suggested that a Comcast-sponsored bike program could be called “CommieBikes” in honor of the NYC conservative press corps’ assessment of CitiBike.
4. Independence Blue Cross
Reduce those premiums with a healthier commute.
5. Wells Fargo, PNC or some other bank
The decision should be based on which bank has the best color scheme. They’re blue in New York, chartreuse in Minneapolis. What would you say to Wells Fargo red or PNC orange?
6. Penn, Drexel, Temple or some other university
Because there aren’t enough bikes whizzing through campus.
7. The Flyers
Would the reputation of the Broad Street Bullies inspire new heights of road rage?
Can you even put a cupholder on a bike?
A few suggestions left us scratching our heads:
Hooters — This makes sense once a year: for the Naked Bike Ride.
Clorox — Too many germs on a public bicycle?
The FBI — A reader suggests the agency will be hanging out in Philly for a long time.
Got any better ideas? (I bet you do.) Tell us in the comments below.
