Bike Rack Coming to Oregon BSL Station in South Philadelphia

Thursday, March 09, 2017

Later this year, SEPTA expects to install street-level bicycle racks at Oregon Station and Cecil B. Moore station on the Broad Street Line, in addition to Berks, 30th, and 46th Street Stations on the MFL.

SEPTA has already Tasker-Morris Station, SEPTA's first to feature underground bicycle infrastructure, currently has 16 U-racks. Opened last August, the stop also has stair runners that assist customers going up and down the steps with a bicycle. Similar underground parking structures are planned for Snyder and Ellsworth-Federal Stations on the BSL and 2nd Street Station on the MFL.

Currently, no parking or bike racks are available at Oregon Station.

The Oregon Station bike rack is expected to be installed later this year at street level only. SEPTA has not given an exact date. Currently, Oregon Station has no parking or amenities available.

Despite having multiple exits on the corners of Oregon and Broad, subway users can only access the station using the entrance on the Southeast corner. This is possibly to reduce the need to hire more SEPTA workers has the booths are all located above ground. A plan in Philadelphia2035 mentions expanding the station and making it more accessible, but no progress has been made.
