BikeSharePhiladelphia's campaign to bring bike sharing to Philadelphia was responsible for 1,400 people writing to Mayor Nutter supporting bike sharing and passage of a City Council resolution. Following this advocacy, the City of Philadelphia asked for a study to determine whether bike sharing systems that have been so successful in Europe would be viable in Philadelphia. "The finding that a market for bike sharing exists merits continued work by the City and our partners to advance the concept," said Rina Cutler, Deputy Mayor of Transportation and Utilities in a letter responding to the report. "My office will take steps this spring and summer to advance the potential of bike share in Philadelphia."
