Philadelphia’s population growth over the coming years is a welcome phenomenon, signalling the city’s resurgence. More people equals more cars on the road, more traffic congestion, even less available parking, as well as the environmental impact of burning fossil fuels for mobility.
Whether you’re committed to driving a car, or looking for other transit options, the Better Mobility Working Group is on your side. It’s a collective of groups as diverse as The Clean Air Council, the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, Philadelphia Bike Share, and the Philadelphia Horticultural Society.
They are committed to improving the city’s streets for all users. Rather than focusing solely on adding bike lanes (and taking away car lanes), the Better Mobility Working Group is interested in improving the condition of the streets, reducing traffic fatalities, and enhancing access to public transit.
They’re hosting a Philadelphia Mayoral Forum tonight, from 6 pm-8 pm at Friends Center, 1501 Cherry St. These issues were not even on the table a decade ago, and now mayoral candidates will be discussing them at a public forum!
That alone is a sign of good things in the city’s future.
