Bike Sharing Feasibility Study Now Available Online

See Inquirer story here

A message from Bike Share Philadelphia:

Finally, the bike share feasibility study, “Philadelphia Bike share Concept Study,” is finished and available for all to see.

What does it say? It says Yes to bike sharing in Philadelphia.

It states:

This study has verified the general viability of a possible Philadelphia bike share program.  Its
implementation and potential success depends on a number of key specific factors:

  • Adequate public funding and/or a private operator willing to invest in the system.
  • Upgrade of the Center City bike-lane network to accommodate the anticipated influx of bicyclists.
  • Attention to the details of education and enforcement.

A 96 page copy of the study can be downloaded from this link: Feasibility Study or on the Bike Share Philly web site.
It is a very large file.

Let us know what you think.
