Protected bike lane at Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, Pa.

The protected bike lane has made a huge splash in the United States over the last few years. A growing number of cities—including Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Washington, Portland, Pittsburgh, and San Antonio—have begun putting in a network of lanes that are physically separated from motor vehicle traffic.

But Philly has not. Yet.  As we presented in our Safer Streets report, Philadelphia is one of just three major U.S. cities without a protected bike lane network.

That needs to change. There are a dozens of miles of streets in Philadelphia that are ripe for low-cost physical separations between cyclists and motor vehicle users.
