Alex Doty

Our July Supporter Social features Alex Doty, former Executive Director of the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia and the League of American Bicyclists.

Join us to hear more about his new advocacy venture, Pennsylvanians for Transit.

The transportation challenges Pennsylvania faces in the coming decades can undermine every effort to increase jobs, lift people out of poverty and build resiliency to climate change.

There is a national infrastructure crisis — road systems designed for the past rather than the future and billions of dollars in repair and maintenance projects that have been delayed too long. At a time when significant investment is needed, Congress seems paralyzed. It is time for Pennsylvanians to act by supporting sustainable funding for public transportation!

Alex has launched a new non-profit, Pennsylvanians for Transit, to support public transportation because it connects people to jobs, connects Pennsylvania communities and prepares us for a prosperous future. PAforTransit.org seeks sustainable Pennsylvania funding for transit and advocates for service improvements to make transit even more efficient.

When: Wednesday, July 11 from 6-7pm
Where: The Porch at 30th Street Station, 2955 Market St, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19104
Please Register!
10% of the bar will go to the Bicycle Coalition!  All are invited.

Sarah’s foray into trail and bicycle advocacy began in 2004 when she became involved in the “Free Schuylkill River Park” campaign to preserve public access to the Schuylkill River Trail in Center City, now known as Schuylkill Banks. Since joining the Bicycle Coalition in 2006, she has been a key player in the Bicycle Coalition’s key accomplishments: the $23 million TIGER trail-building grant; naming and building out the Circuit; lobbying successfully for legislation mandating the inclusion of bike parking in new construction projects; Philadelphia’s Complete Streets policy; and coordinating research and analysis of several reports on bicycling in Philadelphia.
