Pittsburgh Launches the Bike (+) Pledge

Fun, freeing and socially distant, cycling is a great way to explore. Recent data released by Buzzbike saw a 440% surge in demand for two wheels and the bike travel trend is predicted to continue into 2021.

Pittsburgh recently announced the Pittsburgh Bike(+) pledge. A 10-year initiative that aims to give visitors a more affordable transport network with 120 miles of improvements, including bike lanes, trails and low-traffic streets called “neighbourways”. The target is to reduce transportation related emissions by 50% by 2030.

Pittsburgh already has an underground light rail network in place – the T – which is free to ride downtown. And in terms of green spaces, the city has 165 parks, 24 miles of riverfront trails and is in close proximity to Butler County and the Laurel Highlands.
