Better Bikeways Vision and Complete Streets
Complete Streets recognizes that everybody, regardless of who they are, where they live, or how they get around, should have the choice to travel in a safe and comfortable manner.
This is why we are working with the City to make Complete Streets the guiding philosophy of Pittsburgh’s streetscape and rights of way. In April 2015, Mayor Peduto issued a Complete Streets Executive Order, outlining this vision. City Council unanimously adopted a Complete Streets Ordinance in November 2016.
Our Better Bikeways Vision stresses that bike routes must be interconnected, safe, attractive, and comfortable in order to appeal to people of all ages, especially those who are interested in riding a bike but concerned for their safety. Implementing Better Bikeways is a key strategy to increase the number of bicyclists in Pittsburgh, make our streets safer, and to make Pittsburgh more bicycle friendly.
This vision has been made possible by a generous grant from The Richard King Mellon Foundation. Please donate today to help us implement better bikeways in Pittsburgh.
