VIDEO: Businesses Support Safe Trips in the Strip

People on bikes also want safe access to food, jobs & entertainment

Whether it’s to be sure that customers can get to their business or make it more appealing to employees, Strip District businesses want to see more safe options for people to access the neighborhood by bike.

Thousands of Pittsburghers travel to and through the Strip every day on their commutes and for shopping and visiting. Yet roads in the Strip remain some of the most confusing, aggressive, and dangerous. A project to make the Strip easily and safely accessible for pedestrians and bicyclists began in 2014 but was never completed.

People on bikes may not spend as much per visit, but studies show that they visit businesses more frequently, spending more in the long run.

Hear from the businesses themselves on why a safe, connected bikeway to and through the Strip District is important for the bottom line.
