The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership (PDP) requests proposals from qualified firms or teams of firms with the appropriate expertise to serve as a consultant and develop a multimodal mobility plan (the Plan) for Downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The PDP strives to advance an accessible, welcoming, and safe multimodal transportation system that is informed by a shared vision while balancing needs and optimizing space in the geographically limited Central Business District (CBD, also referred to as the Golden Triangle).
Over the last ten years over $5.2 billion dollars has been invested in the Greater Downtown community with an additional $3.5 billion in the pipeline. As a result, a number of real estate development and transportation projects have been completed, introduced, or are in development in Greater Downtown. Similarly, new private and public investment in the Golden Triangle as well as surrounding neighborhoods of the Lower Hill District, North Shore, Strip District, Uptown, and South Shore, is already beginning to impact how people get around and experience Downtown.
Recognizing the emergence of new mobility technologies and building upon previous Downtown studies, planned roadway improvements, and projected land use changes, the Plan will develop a comprehensive strategy for the safe and efficient movement of people, transit, bicycles, vehicles, freight, and other means of transport across Greater Downtown. The goal of the Plan is to account for these changes and build a strategy to transform the Downtown mobility network into a 21st century system prioritizing the movement of people and optimization of the public right-of-way.
