Indego, Philadelphia's long-awaited bicycle sharing program, launches Thursday.
For bikers in need of a helmet, Uber is ready to assist.
The transportation company is offering Nutcase Metroride helmets in exchange for a $10 donation to the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia. Uber will match each donation.
Uber users can obtain a helmet by requesting "HELMET" on Uber's app between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. An Uber driver will arrive several minutes later with the helmet. There is a limit of two helmets per person.
The helmet option will be available to Uber users from 63rd Street to the Delaware River and from Lehigh Avenue to Pattison Avenue.
The Nutcase helmet is adjustable and certified for bicycling.
Indego is making more than 600 bikes available at 70 docking stations throughout Philadelphia. Riders can elect to purchase a membership, which offers various cost-effective options or rent bikes for single use at more expensive rates.
