Registration Open for Philly Pedestrian & Bicycle Summit

Interested in the future of walking and bicycling in Philadelphia? The Mayor's Office of Transportation and Utilities (MOTU) has opened registration for their day-long summit coming up April 30th.

Transportation is becoming a big deal in Philadelphia. We are not a city of cars - we are a city of people trying to get places. MOTU is holding a summit to discuss and demystify Philly's plans, strategies, and purposes for how it manages foot and bicycle traffic.

Topics will include:

  • Where and when Philadelphia will get new bike lanes;
  • The City's sidewalk cafe regulations;
  • How and why the City optimizes traffic signals and manages construction to benefit pedestrian traffic;
  • The future of The Circuit and other regional bike/ped trails. 

High-level people from MOTU and regional planning and development agencies will be in attendance, speaking about their work and taking questions from the public.

The summit is free to attend but you need to register in advance.
