Philly's bike-share system Indego is set to shift into high gear.

Driving the news: The program is expected to add more than 30 new stations and 400 electric bicycles next year, Indego announced Thursday.

What they're saying: The city will focus on expanding service in West and South Philly and along Kelly Drive leading up to the East Falls neighborhood, Mayor Jim Kenney said in a statement.

  • Indego played a significant role during the pandemic and will continue to do so going forward, Kenney said.

The big picture: The city aims to more than double the bike-share system, operated by Bicycle Transit, and reach 3,500 bicycles and 350 stations by the end of 2026.

Of note: Philadelphia has been criticized in the past for failing to attract low-income riders.

What's next: New bicycle stations are expected to begin popping up in the spring.
