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.

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.
