With driving likely difficult as a traffic box is put into effect during Pope Francis’ visit to Philadelphia next month, biking may be your best bet to get around.

But, will bike-sharing be available while the Pontiff is in town?

It’s not exactly clear at this point. The city earlier announced that the Indego bike-sharing service that has dozens of locations throughout the city won’t be available at certain docks on Sept. 26 and 27.

But will the bicycles be available in certain locations?

Indego spokeswoman Kiera Smalls said that operating plans still haven’t been finalized.

Stay tuned and in the meantime you may want to grab your own bike to get around.
