Indego e-bikes docked along Market Street and 52nd in West Philadelphia.

PHILADELPHIA — As Indego, the city’s bike share program, builds more and more stations across Philadelphia, Tonetta Graham is thrilled to see more bikes in her Strawberry Mansion neighborhood.

“To have them in your community, to be so visual in the community, [it’s] saying that, ‘this is something that I have access to as well,’” said Graham, the president of the Strawberry Mansion Community Development Corporation. She and the CDC have hosted community bike rides, bicycle basics training classes and given out free helmets to Strawberry Mansion residents young and old.

Oh yeah, and trust me, the low-income community will trash these bikes into oblivion.
