In 2019, the City of Pittsburgh set an ambitious goal: build a 220-mile, safe and connected network of on-street and off street facilities, enabling people of all ages and abilities to travel by bicycle and other small mobility modes to access the needs of daily life.
" Now more than ever, we need resiliency and safety in our transportation network. People on bicycles, people in vehicles, and people on foot all benefit from a complete network that logically accommodates travelers of all modes. "
Bill Peduto, Mayor (2014-2022)
