VOTE TO LOCATE
STANDS FOR BICYCLES BUILT FOR TWO (THOUSAND)
the City will locate 150 to 200 bikeshare stations, each a minimum of 7' x 35',
containing as many as 2000 bikes available for short term rental. You can
register your vote as to where bikeshare stations should be located on line at
phlbikesharemap.com (a site
that favors Mozilla and Chrome browsers over Internet Explorer). The site
contains a map of the City dotted with blue icons, each of which represents a
suggested bike station location. Click on the icon to learn the address of the
suggested location and, in the upper left hand corner, the number of votes
garnered by the location. To determine which locations have gathered the most
votes, move your cursor to the arrow on the scale labeled "Filter by Popularity"
in the lower right of the page depicting the City map. As you move the arrow to
the right, the locations with the least votes are eliminated. You can create a
new location or add your vote to locations that have already been selected. At
present, the two top vote getters in our neighborhood are Broad and South (71
votes) and City Hall (87 votes), both non controversial choices. But some
obvious locations lag significantly. For instance, Markward Playground at
Taney Park has only 8 votes. Let's not let our neighborhood be outvoted by those
effete Easterners living in Wash West or Society Hill. And imagine the shame,
the unspeakable shame, of being out polled by the Southerners residing below
South Street. Neighbors Unite! Speak now or forever hold your
