Take a New Survey to Determine the Future of Downtown Mobility

Friday, May 1, 2020

Following an investigation into the existing conditions, best practices, and public feedback on issues and opportunities, a few key themes have emerged that the PDP’s Mobility Team would like to propose as Guiding Principles to set the tone for the Downtown Pittsburgh Mobility Plan.

The Guiding Principles serve as the high-level vision and help organize the goals, strategies, and projects that will follow. They also ensure that we stay true to our intentions as the Plan progresses and remain focused as we move into implementation.

Proposed Guiding Principles

  • Welcoming & Vibrant: Downtown Pittsburgh’s mobility system should embrace Downtown’s status as a diverse and interesting place while ensuring everyone feels safe.
  • People-first & Transit-prioritized: Downtown Pittsburgh’s mobility system should strengthen the walkability of Downtown while providing high-quality transit service and amenities.
  • Equitable & Affordable: Downtown Pittsburgh’s mobility system should ensure Downtown is accessible for all, regardless of means or abilities.
  • Intuitive & Coherent: Downtown Pittsburgh’s mobility system should get people where they need to go while balancing street and curb demands, particularly during peak periods.
  • Adaptable & Healthy: Downtown Pittsburgh’s mobility system should be building and maintaining infrastructure and advancing policies that support the dynamic needs of Downtown and improve public health.
  • Regionally Focused & Nationally Competitive: Downtown Pittsburgh’s mobility system should contribute to the shared economic growth of the region while striving to be a leader amongst peer cities.

We want to hear your input on the draft Guiding Principles and proposed Goals. This survey, open through Friday, May 15 should only take five minutes to complete and will contribute to the development of the Plan.
