Philadelphia City Council Moves Bikeshare Proposal Forward

A council committee has approved a bill that would pave the way for Bicycle Transit Systems to set up a bikeshare program in Philadelphia. The bill now moves to the full council.

"If passed by Council, riders will be able to use bikes at one of 60 stations throughout the city beginning in spring 2015," reports Cindy Stansbury

"The city will initially provide up to $3 million to Bicycle Transit Systems, the Philly-based company chosen to provide, operate and maintain the integrated bike-share system, he said. The funds will be used for delivery, planning and installation."
