Popularity of Bike Racks at Stations Continues to Grow

September 17, 2017

Due to popular demand, SEPTA enhanced the bicycle parking at Tasker-Morris Station on the Broad Street Line.

Originally, SEPTA installed six U-racks on the northeast side of the station. Soon after the racks were installed, SEPTA staff noticed that the racks were filled to capacity and more were needed.

SEPTA responded by installing an additional 18 U-racks, directional signage at street level, bicycle stair ramps, security cameras and signs instructing customers how to properly lock a bicycle to a U-rack. SEPTA General Manager Jeffrey Knueppel recently met with the Executive Director of the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia Sarah Clark Stuart to tour the station and speak about bicycle and transit coordination.
