The next six to seven months are critical to Philadelphia’s future. The mayoral candidate that wins the May 2015 primary will most likely be Philadelphia’s mayor until 2024.
We think that the city’s transportation networks and infrastructure should be a high priority campaign issue. Making Philadelphia a safer and easier place to walk, drive, bike or take transit is crucial to making Philadelpha a economically competitive city. The Bicycle Coalition has been working with several partner organizations to develop a platform to help inform all mayoral and council candidates about the policy actions that would support safer and more accessible transportation networks.
To learn more about this draft platform and provide feedback on it, please attend this upcoming event.
