A Look at Pittsburgh’s Bike Parking and Presumptive New Mayor

The future looks bright for Pittsburgh for 2014. As they prepare to host the Pro Walk Pro Bike Pro Place conference next September, last week Project for Public Spaces held a one-day summit in advance of next year's big event.

One thing Pittsburgh is doing is creating some innovative and fun bike parking facilities. As you'll see from the video, we present three types, including a converted space in a parking garage decorated in a "Space Invaders" theme, an extremely unique and secure bike parking facility that repurposes shipping containers, and bike parking corrals outside some very busy restaurants.

Pittsburgh City Council Member Bill Peduto delivered a great speech to help kickoff last week's conference. He won the Democratic primary for mayor and is the overwhelming favorite to win the post in less than two months. He has a very impressive grasp of transportation issues and has been a huge fan of Streetfilms for years. Understanding just how important livability is to a city, he can hit the ground running on transportation. I think the next four years in Pittsburgh could be groundbreaking.

I caught a few minutes of Peduto's remarks, in the video after the jump. And check out short films of two Pittsburgh bike and pedestrian bridges here.
