Better Mobility in Philadelphia’s 2015 Elections

At the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, we care deeply about where our next mayor and City Council stand on bringing our sidewalks into good repair, connecting the bikeway network and adopting a Vision Zero policy—and which candidates are most likely to implement these programs, all of which strengthen our economy and make our city more appealing. We worked with numerous groups throughout the region to assemble the Better Mobility Working Group and, through our joint effort, are meeting with all Philadelphia mayoral candidates before hosting a Better Mobility mayoral forum on March 19, 2015, which will be sponsored by Parsons Brinkerhoff, Clear Sound, People for Bikes, the Alliance for Biking and Walking and the William Penn Foundation.

These issues are detailed in Better Mobility Philadelphia 2015, a platform released this spring, and available below.
