Philadelphia Vision Zero Alliance
The Bicycle Coalition has been advocating for a comprehensive Vision Zero policy in Philadelphia for several years. After hosting the Better Mobility mayoral forum during the 2014 primary, the Bicycle Coalition and our partners hosted Philadelphia’s first-ever Vision Zero Conference in December 2015.
The conference featured experts and speakers from all over the U.S., showing the hundreds of audience-members how Philadelphia could make Vision Zero—the goal of zero traffic deaths—a reality.
Then, in 2016, the Coalition hosted a half-day forum; Vision Zero: Maintaining Speed, which specifically told audiences how Philadelphia could make automated enforcement a reality doing what other cities have already done: Automate traffic enforcement using red light cameras and speed cameras.
Now, the Bicycle Coalition and other like-minded partners, including 5th Square, Jefferson Hospital, the African-American Chamber of Commerce, AAA, Run 215, Clean Air Council, Feet First Philly, and the Public Health Management Corporation, have created Philadelphia’s first official Vision Zero Alliance. Together, the Alliance will support the creation of a comprehensive Vision Zero strategy in Philadelphia, and provide input to city government officials who will work on implementing Vision Zero strategies.
