Inform the PDP’s Downtown Mobility Plan

Katie Phillips Active + Engaged Residents, Advocacy, Diverse + Connected Region, General

The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership (PDP) is developing a Downtown Mobility Plan “designed to make Downtown easier to navigate for all who work, live and visit the Golden Triangle.” The PDP is working with the City of Pittsburgh, the Port Authority of Allegheny County, the Southwest Pennsylvania Commission, and Downtown stakeholders – and they need your feedback.

Why does Downtown need a Mobility Plan?

The Mobility Plan is an effort to respond to and prepare for increased revitalization and significant investments in Downtown. It will seek improvements for the pedestrian, transit, biking, vehicle, and delivery experience, with the goal of maintaining Downtown’s role as a “vibrant economic, cultural, and transporation hub for our region.”

PDP seeks public input throughout the process “to identify issues and prioritize opportunities to improve the Downtown experience for all users, especially during peak travel times.”

PUMP supports a diverse and connection region, with world-class, multi-modal transportation infrastructure that supports connectivity. This is a key value identified by young people in the region during the development of our Advocacy + Public Policy Agenda in 2017. Downtown is significant as both a destination for people throughout the City and region and as a connection point to other parts of the City and region, so it is essential that transportation to, from, and within Downtown serves everyone well. Read on to learn how you can get involved in developing the Downtown Mobility Plan.
