The City of Philadelphia launched Indego in 2015 as the city’s newest form of public transportation with 60 stations and 600 bikes. Since 2015, Indego has expanded to 120+ stations and 1,200+ bikes. Indego offers 24/7 access to the City on your schedule. Indego is an initiative of the City of Philadelphia, supported by the Better Bike Share Partnership, and sponsored by Independence Blue Cross.

OUR VISION
A transportation system that benefits everyone. It is a system that is safe, affordable, accessible, and reliable at moving Philadelphians, visitors, and commerce so neighborhoods thrive, people are healthy, and the economy grows.

OUR MISSION
To provide bike share as a high quality, reliable, affordable, flexible, and healthy transportation option that gives the user access to the City and our diverse communities.

OUR VALUES AND GOALS

Opportunity & Access – Indego should increase personal mobility in Philadelphia and provide people with better access to destinations throughout the City. Indego should offer high quality and reliable service and integrate as an extension of Philadelphia’s public transit network, while ensuring the program is cost competitive for all users.

Equity – Indego should provide a service that is inclusive, accessible, and affordable to all users. Indego should improve access for low-income communities, encourage ridership among all age groups, and reduce non-financial barriers to entry by minority and low-income communities.

Health & Safety – Indego should provide a safe mode of transportation that promotes active and healthy living. Indego should foster active lifestyles and improve access to fresh foods and green space while also promoting a culture of safety among bike share users.

Finances & Transparency – Indego should be financially sustainable, transparently operated, and accountable to the public. Indego’s performance and effectiveness should be clearly communicated to stakeholders and the public.

The vision, mission, values, and goals are based on the 2018 Indego Business Plan Update which was developed under the City’s Strategic Transportation Plan, CONNECT. Community organizations or businesses interested in hosting an Indego station should contact Aaron Ritz (aaron.ritz@phila.gov 215-686-9000). (Last Update: October 2018)
