Livable, Bikeable Pittsburgh: The Streetfilms Tour

During a recent two-day swing through the Steel City, Streetfilms learned that, like many other metro areas across the country, Pittsburgh has a growing movement for better bicycling and more livable streets. We made this travelogue to show some of the ways the momentum is building. Among the cool things you'll see...

    • A newly renovated and pedestrianized Market Square, where two cross streets were eliminated to create a better place for people. The experts at Project for Public Spaces helped consult on the project.
    • A morning commuter breakfast with the folks at Bike Pittsburgh, where we got to talk to cyclists about what they like about their city, and what could use some improvement.
    • An unusual bike parking facility that uses retro-fitted shipping containers and is operated by a public-private partnership. For just $100 you can safely park your bike indoors for a year.
    • The Over the Bar Cafe -- a unique bicycle-themed restaurant serving great food and drink, and a frequent meeting place for rides and advocacy events. The walls are filled with cycling memorabilia and adorned with murals. It's usually packed with riders and non-riders alike.
