This former industrial capital has defined itself in recent years as a great place to bike. A participant in PeopleForBikes’ Final Mile program — which helped five U.S. cities move faster, more efficiently and more equitably to build better mobility networks — Pittsburgh completed 50 new network miles from 2019-2021 as part of its Bike(+) Plan, and plans on completing another 15 miles in 2022. The implementation includes “neighborways” — traffic-calmed streets that take advantage of Pittsburgh’s compact infrastructure.

With hilly topography, narrow streets, 90 distinct neighborhoods and a brand new bike share system, Pittsburgh offers an unforgettable bicycling experience for visitors or locals alike. In April 2022, Healthy Ride bike share rebranded as POGOH, which launched with electric bikes, significant equity initiatives and a pricing structure that better reflects the way people use bikes. Plus, the city is home to the first mobility as a service (MaaS) project of its kind in the U.S., Move PGH, which works to make different forms of shared mobility easily accessible and car ownership obsolete.
