The Pope is Coming – Ride Your Bike!

On the weekend of September 26th and 27th Pope Francis will be in Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families. The City of Philadelphia and the US Secret Service are working with numerous transportation agencies to coordinate plans to move with the projected crowds who will be attending the Pope’s public appearances.

With motorized traffic and transit access severely curtailed we believe that the bicycle will the best way to get around Central Philadelphia. Most streets within the traffic box will become “Open Streets” nearly free of automobile traffic, allowing people on foot and bicycle to enjoy cleaner air and a quieter urban environment.

We created the Papal Visit bike map to give you the information you need to travel to and through the City on bicycle.
