Join the 2022 Indego Community Ambassador Team! 

Do you see a need for a healthy, family-friendly, affordable way for your community to reconnect with the city and its resources?

Indego is built on the notion that equity and accessibility should be the cornerstone of any bike-share system.  Now in its 6th year, Indego has more than 165 stations and 1,500 bicycles across much of Philadelphia and has served nearly five million rides since its launch.  

Becoming a Community Ambassador is an amazing opportunity to educate folks about Indego and help provide a way for families and friends across Philadelphia to spend time together and reconnect. Over the past two years, our lives have been heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s why the theme for the 2022 Indego Community Ambassador season is Reconnecting Communities. ***Please note, we are no longer accepting applications for our 2022 Ambassador program due to a high volume of responses.


Celebrating the Legacy of Russell Meddin

In memory of his legacy, the station at 24th and Race has been dedicated to Russell Meddin.  

It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that Indego would not exist without Russell Meddin. From the offices of his nonprofit organization, Bike Share Philadelphia, to the countless meetings he organized with bike sharing manufacturers, operators, and innovators it seemed like Russell was on a first-name basis with everyone who had anything to do with shared micro-mobility across the country, and even across the globe.
