Philadelphia only has five miles of protected bike lanes today, but is slated to gain 15 more in 2020 and an additional 20 more over the next five years, according to Mayor Kenney’s recent budget address.
These lanes are part of what oTIS is calling the “High Quality Bicycle Network.”
After several years of community engagement under its belt, how will the Office of Transportation, Infrastructure and Sustainability approach communities outside of Center City about protected bike lanes? Jeannette Brugger of oTIS will be joined by Mark Harrell of the Southwest CDC, Sarah Anton of Passyunk Square Civic Association and Councilmember Jamie Gauthier to discuss what oTIS is planning for the HQBN, lessons learned from past efforts and what is planned for future outreach.
The only place to get this up to date insight into Philly’s plans for protected bike lanes is to attend the 20/20 Vision for Vision Zero Philadelphia
