What

Since 2008, bicycling in Philadelphia has changed on many fronts due to 1) City, Regional and State policies and infrastructure initiatives, 2) state and federal funding streams and 3) changing demographics. The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia has been on the front lines advocating for high quality bicycle infrastructure and more progressive transportation policies within City of Philadelphia and the Greater Philadelphia region through policy analysis and engagement campaigns.
