Take a minute to help develop a Downtown Mobility Plan for All
The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership (PDP), an organization that works to enhance the Downtown neighborhood, is working on a mobility plan for downtown with the goal of making it easier for anyone who lives, works or visits there get around. The PDP has been an integral player in such downtown mobility improvements like the Penn Ave Bike Lanes (and counters), the improvements on Liberty Ave, and the Smithfield St super-bus stop, among others.
Downtown is a vibrant economic, transportation, and cultural hub of the region. Constrained by both the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers, city leaders are looking to figure out how to bring more people into this limited space, without adding more cars.
Let’s face it – too many cars in downtown is problematic, and increasing the numbers within the golden triangle doesn’t help anyone.
With that in mind, the Mobility Plan will identify ways to improve the pedestrian, transit, biking, vehicle, and delivery experience.
To start, the PDP has launched a survey, and it’s important that they learn from all downtown travelers.
A series of surveys, public workshops, focus groups, and stakeholder committees will also be utilized to gather insights throughout the planning process over the next several months.
