pHILLY, THE cITY OF bICYCLE lOVE
Indego is the culmination of years of work, watching, researching, waiting for Philadelphia to be ready for bike share. Not first to the party, but not afraid to innovate. Philadelphia's MOTU led the way on this system, issuing a Request for Proposals in November 2013. They also led the way in procuring the title sponsor, Independence Blue Cross. Some of the unique things about Indego are:
- A first-ever text-message and site-based outreach campaign to receive public input on potential site locations, partnering with Textizen
- A pricing structure that mirrors transit pricing
- A scalable cash payment program, partnering with PayNearMe
