In the past five years, Philadelphia and neighboring communities have become increasingly supportive of residents, workers and visitors who chose travel by foot or bike. Multi-million dollar investments have been made across the region to both tie to together and expand our trail networks. Philadelphia neighborhoods have been actively building pedestrian enhancements, such as Parklets in North Philly and Pedestrian Plazas in University City. Philadelphia’s Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities, in conjunction with the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, invites you to celebrate, learn more about recent investments and emerging best practices at the Greater Philadelphia Pedestrian & Bicycle Summit.
A detailed agenda will be released in the coming weeks. If you are not able to attend the entire summit feel free to join us for sessions that most relevant to you. Morning sessions will focus on the region’s trail network and policies for protecting pedestrians. Afternoon sessions will focus on the expanding bicycle network, evolving best practices and standards and community investments in active transportation.
If you have any questions or concerns or if you would like to be placed on the summit’s email distribution list, please contact Ariel Ben-Amos at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-686-9001.
