Vision Zero Philadelphia 2015


On December 3, 2015, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia and numerous partners held Philadelphia’s first Vision Zero Conference, which brought together experts in the planning, health, advocacy and transportation fields to figure out how to make Philadelphia safer for all road users.

Vision Zero is a policy that seeks to reduce all traffic deaths in a given area to zero in a given amount of time, and we believe many citywide organizations — City Hall, the Philadelphia Police Department, and hospitals, among others — have an important stake in this issue. Even Mayor-Elect Jim Kenney came to speak and show his support for Vision Zero:

The conference was heavily-covered in Philadelphia media, and you can read about it Philly Voice, Philadelphia Inquirer,, Generocity, Plan PhillyThe Philadelphia Business Journal and CBS 3

One panel features leaders in Philadelphia Streets, Police, and MOTU talking Vision Zero
