• City of Pittsburgh monitoring how people are using bike lanes

    Updated:

    PITTSBURGH - This week, the City of Pittsburgh is keeping an eye of how many people are using the bicycle lanes.

    Volunteers in various neighborhoods will be participating in Pittsburgh’s annual ‘Bike and Pedestrian Count.’

    The count helps the city analyze how the lanes are used, and how they can be improved.

    “We’re trying to use data more and more to inform our decisions and also to give us a proof of concept of knowing what we value is the same as what the city values,” said Kristin Saunders, the City’s Bike and Pedestrian coordinator.

    Volunteers will be out doing the morning and evening commutes tomorrow, as well as Saturday morning.
