More Bike Racks for Philly

The Streets Department plans to install up to 2000 bike racks throughout the city. The department will contact the city's Business Improvement Districts, neighborhood and business associations to determine where bike racks need to be placed.

There is one catch though, the local association has to sign a maintenance agreement with the city to provide touch up paint and remove abandoned bikes.

If you are a business owner or a commuter in any of the local business districts contact the districts executive director and tell them you need bike racks. Installation of the racks is expected to begin in the summer or fall of this year.
