EFDC would like to start a campaign to bring Indego bike share to East Falls. We have support from some developers and business owners and we already have a designated location for a docking station. The EFDC has met and corresponded with Indego bike share for the last couple of years but with no success. You can help this initiative and be part of the campaign by lobbying Philly's bike share program. Please consider doing the following: 1) Submit a message/letter of support to bring Indego bike share to East Falls. Go to: https://www.rideindego.com/about/contact/ 2) If you see any Indego bikes around East Falls, please snap a picture and submit it with your letter of support. Thank you so much for your help with this campaign!
