It's Official - Bikes Are Fastest In Center City!

Contrary to yesterday's article in the Philadelphia Inquirer, bicycles are the fastest way around Center City. This is according to a newly released report from the Center City District: Managing Success in Center City: Reducing Congestion, Enhancing Public Spaces.

Among the recommendations proposed in the report there are several that benefit bicyclists such as:
  • Exploring options for on-street bike parking and
  • Bike parking in parking garages
  • Adding sharrows to Sansom St
  • Looking at the feasibility of physically separated bike on wider streets
