BikePGH is transforming our streets to make biking and walking commonplace for all Pittsburghers in order to improve our quality of life and reduce the harmful effects of car dependence in our communities.
We envision a Pittsburgh where people can thrive without needing to own a car – making Pittsburgh a world class leader in clean, affordable, and convenient transportation.
Our Theory of Change
We believe that people need realistic options in order to change their transportation habits away from single occupancy car trips and toward biking, walking, and transit. We focus on three key areas to achieve this shift. Together, we will make biking and walking commonplace for all Pittsburghers.
We strive to make Pittsburgh a more livable place. What do we mean by “livable”? It means we value:
Equity and Inclusivity: People of all abilities, incomes, ages, genders, and ethnicities should have a voice in car-free transportation options.
Safe Access: Pittsburghers are able to easily and safely access all the things they need in life without relying on a car.
Clean Air: Improving air quality and mitigating climate change should be prioritized for all Pittsburghers through less fossil fuel usage.
Civic Engagement: Collaborating with partners, sharing best practices and building grassroots movements help us achieve our mission.
Major Programmatic Focuses
Advocacy: Our advocacy encourages our city officials to provide safe car-free transportation options via infrastructure and public policy.
Community: Our community building activities bring together people from all parts of the city to experience and engage with new ideas and show their support for these initiatives.
Education: Our education efforts give residents the tools they need to safely experience the city by bike.
