Let’s Make Safe Streets a Priority: A letter from Scott Bricker, Executive Director

A letter from Scott Bricker, Executive Director 

Change doesn’t come easy in Pittsburgh.

But, together, we changed the minds of Pittsburgh City Planners and won bike lanes on Smallman Street.

And we’re not stopping until the vital connection from Downtown to Lawrenceville and Bloomfield is complete.

Smallman Street will include bike lanes in 2019

Together, we won brand new shared bus-bike lanes on Smithfield Street and Wood Street. 

Plus a bonus contraflow (and soon-to be-protected) bike lane on 3rd Avenue.

Together, we are creating safer connections, helping people on bikes get where they need to go.

New contraflow bike lane on 3rd Avenue

Together, we worked with our Pittsburgh neighborhoods and nearby municipalities and formed five new bike and pedestrian committees, and passed two new complete streets policies.

The Triboro Ecodistrict (Millvale, Etna, Sharpsburg) adopted Complete Streets policies and won our Advocates of the Year award

Change isn’t easy. That’s why I’m asking for your generous support to keep BikePGH’s advocacy projects moving forward. Please give today.
