About Us

MoveForwardPGH was an initiative of the City of Pittsburgh’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure to implement their new Bike(+) Plan. Working with its local nonprofit partners, BikePGH and Healthy Ride (now POGOH), the City engaged the community throughout the process of installing new bike-friendly connections throughout Pittsburgh.

The Department is responsible for the transportation of people and goods throughout the City of Pittsburgh, and for managing the operation of and access to the public right-of-way (the sidewalks, curbs, streets, and bridges that make up our network).

City’s Mobility Principles:

  1. No one dies or is seriously injured traveling on city streets (streets and intersections are intuitive to use, even by an adolescent child).
  2. Every resident can access fresh fruits and vegetables within 20 minutes travel of home (without requiring a private vehicle).
  3. All trips less than 1 mile are easy and enjoyable to achieve by non-vehicle travel.
  4. No household must spend more than 45% of income on housing + transportation + energy (for any income quintile).

BikePGH is transforming our streets to make biking and walking commonplace for all Pittsburghers in order to improve our quality of life and reduce the harmful effects of car dependence in our communities. We envision a Pittsburgh where people can thrive without needing to own a car – making Pittsburgh a world class leader in clean, affordable, and convenient transportation. We believe that people need realistic options in order to change their transportation habits away from single occupancy car trips and toward biking, walking, and transit. We focus on three key areas to achieve this shift: Advocacy, Community, and Education. Together, we will make biking and walking commonplace for all Pittsburghers.
