Want to know where the city's mayoral candidates standing on improving Pittsburgh's accessibility for biking and walking? Improving citywide data on crashes involving pedestrians and cyclists? Planning bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure?
Now you can find out.
BikePGH, the city's bicycling advocacy group, has posted questionnaires completed by Democratic mayoral candidates Bill Peduto, A.J. Richardson, Jack Wagner and Jake Wheatley, and Republican candidate Josh Wander, online as part of its #bikewalkvote campaign.
"This year, we wanted to clearly show the candidates that these issues are not only utterly important for the lives, safety and health of our citizens, but that they are also hugely popular," BikePGH wrote on its website. "However, the infrastructure making sure that these workers stay safe is seriously lacking and disconnected."
BikePGH will post questionnaires from the city council candidates next week.
