Safe Trips in the Strip

Everyone should be able to travel to the Strip safely

UPDATE! The City has proposed a redesign of every major street in the Strip District, including bike lanes on Penn Ave and Smallman St. The bike lane portion is now funded in the Mayor’s 2024 Capital Budget.

The Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) and the Mayor’s Office will be hosting a community meeting on Wednesday, May 1 to discuss traffic safety improvements on Penn Avenue in the Strip District! The meeting will be held at the Original Pittsburgh Winery (2809 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222) at 6:00 p.m.

Registration is not required, but RSVPs do help them plan ahead, and expedite check-in! RSVP to attend in person at this link.

Ensure the Strip is safe for those OUTSIDE of cars

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.

As the Strip and surrounding areas boom, and as we emerge from the pandemic as a city excited to reinvigorate and reconnect, now is the time to finish the job and complete this crucial transportation infrastructure.

Tales from the Strip

Listen to stories of Pittsburghers traveling through the strip in our “Tales from the Strip” series. Whether we get around with cars, buses, bicycles, by walking, or other means of transportation, none of us should have to navigate unsafe or confusing streets in our most highly trafficked areas. This is why we are calling for Safe Trips in the Strip!
