Your input is needed for the county’s Active Allegheny Plan

Join the public meetings about the comprehensive commuter bicycle and pedestrian transportation plan for Allegheny County

Allegheny County will be looking at ways to enhance people powered transportation opportunities over the coming months.

This effort will begin with public meetings in Pittsburgh and in Carnegie next week.
