Studies show bike lanes can reduce congestion, contrary to Pittsburgh residents’ criticism

Pushing back against new bike lanes is becoming a Pittsburgh tradition. When Mayor Bill Peduto installed the lanes there was outcry worrying about parking. There was also support from hundreds of bikers and advocates, but media outlets downplayed that support.

Now, two years after setting up protected bike lanes Downtown on Penn Avenue and the Roberto Clemente Bridge, the city is still facing strong push-back on an extension to that system along Fort Pitt Boulevard. In response, Pittsburgh City Councilor Theresa Kail-Smith (District 2) proposed the creation of a bike-lane committee to field complaints and suggestions for new bike lanes.
