Philadelphia Pedestrian and Bike Master Plan

Welcome! This interactive map is provided by the Philadelphia City Planning Commission as a way to gather comments from the public about walking and bicycling conditions in Philadelphia. We are looking for information about streets and routes that you use, routes you believe are walking and/or bicycle-friendly, or un-friendly, and areas where you think improvements are needed. The comments will be gathered and used in the planning process that is underway to develop the Philadelphia Pedestrian and Bike Master Plan.

Here is how you can participate:
1) You can place a marker (point) on the map, assign it to a category, and make a comment about the issue or condition you are pointing out.

--Add markers by clicking on the "Add Marker" link at the top of the page and then clicking the appropriate location in the map. Please enter a short, descriptive title and select a category. Use the “Description” field to elaborate further on the nature of the issue addressed or improvement suggested.

2) You can draw a line on the map to represent a route, and place one or more markers on it to provide a comment that explains what the line represents.

--Add paths by clicking the “Start A Path” link at the top of the page and then clicking at successive points on the map to indicate the direction of the path. (Note: More than two points are required to make a curved path). Promote at least one of path’s end points to a marker by clicking on the end point and clicking “Promote to Marker” in the call-out box. Please enter a short, descriptive title and category. Use the “Description” field to elaborate.

3) You can add a comment about a location that another person has already placed on the map.

--Add comments by clicking on the “Add Comment” link provided at the bottom of the callout box for each marker.

Pedestrian Bridge with Ramps
This is an excellent crossing and off road connections should be considered for access to Holme Ave, Nazareth Hospital.

Pedestrian Bridge Removed
Byberry Road was closed to vehicles after Franklin Mills was opened. It was used as a pedestrian bridge for years until it was removed. Connected a neighborhood in Bensalem with the mall and transit hub.
(view on the map)
Franklin Mills Mall
Need bike parking and bike friendly routes approaching and circling the mall.
(view on the map)
Krewstown Roads lacks shoulders and sidewalks
(view on the map)
Extend the Pennypack Trail to Rhawn Street
Idle rail line is a trail north of Shady Lane. Extending the trail south to Rhawn St will provide a non-motorized connection to Fox Chase Train Station.
(view on the map)
Fatal Bike Crash
Bus struck cyclist at this intersection in 2007.
(view on the map)
More Bike Parking needed at Casino
(view on the map)
Safe Crossing for Pennypack Trail needed
There is no signage or easy crossing to get across State Road for the Pennypack Trail.
(view on the map)
Welsh Road near Roosevelt Boulevard
Bike lane encroachment is rampant here and makes them virtually useless. Lots of driveways and turns.
(view on the map)
Good alternative to Roosevelt Blvd
Blue Grass road should have bike lanes from Welsh Rd to Roosevelt Blvd.
(view on the map)
Connect Blue Grass Road to Red Lion Rd.
There is no sidewalk here. A dead end for bicyclists and pedestrians.

No North-South bike lanes east of Broad
This is the route I take to get to the Spruce street bikes lanes, but in general, any numbered street east of Broad in the 4-9th street vicinity with a bike lane would be good.
(view on the map)
Fitzwater (or some east-west street below South) needs a bike lane
Parking on both sides of this street means cyclists have to take the road or risk being "doored." I do the former, and was on the receiving end of some pretty scary road rage last week, even though I had every right to bike down this narrow street.
(view on the map)
Please develop safe way from getting from Bella Vista/Queen Village to the Spruce Street Bike lanes
The southeast quadrant of the city, below south but above Washington, needs a main bike lane.
(view on the map)
The weekend church parking on Spruce and Pine makes it unsafe for cyclists
As you probably know, on the weekends the PPA allows the "church crowd" to park in the bike lanes. If this rules must endure, at the very least please designate these roads bike priority lanes (clearly marked and ideally painted a different color) so that motorists know that, hey, we cyclists would happily take the bike lane if we could, so please slow down and enjoy your afternoon.
(view on the map)
A southbound bike lane line the one on 22nd would be great
(view on the map)
Repaint bike lane
The bike lane lines have faded entirely on this stretch of 22d.
(view on the map)
I love these two bike lanes but turning from 22d onto the Benjamin Franklin Parkway is madness. Bike traffic lights or blue-painted turn lane connecting the two please.
(view on the map)
Nice bike lanes but continuing from Benjamin Franklin northwest past this intersection is suicide without switching to sidewalks and pedestrian crossing.
(view on the map)
The right lane on Chestnut and the outside lanes on Market are designated bike/bus share lanes, but the buses regularly harass bikes and it generally doesn't seem like a good idea to put these two transport modes in the same space. I avoid these so-called "bike lanes" in preference for Sansom or Walnut, or I use the car lanes instead of the bus lanes--the buses are too wide for me to contend with.
(view on the map)
Front of the Art Museum
A no-stopping zone and bike lane where cars and cabs often park, especially on weekends.
(view on the map)
Kelly Drive/26th St.
It' s long walk across Kelly Drive and Fairmount and Pennsylvania--and drivers often run red lights at high speed.
(view on the map)
Busy and hard to get across
If one rides up the path, it is difficult to cross Montgomery Dr. on Belmont Mansion Dr.
(view on the map)
Important Link to West Bank
A daunting narrow sidewalk that completes a great loop from Center City to Falls Bridge and Back
(view on the map)
Lack Thereof
Bike racks always full. Multiple bikes chained to fence that has signs prohibiting just that.
(view on the map)
Baltimore Avenue Corridor
Bike lane markings are almost completely obliterated and must be repainted.

Bike lane markings are almost completely obliterated and must be repainted.

Chamounix Loop
This is a very wide street, commonly used by cyclists. Unfortunately the lane markings are very silly, blocking off a non-existing left lane with a double yellow line and stripes. Could EASILY be re-striped because of all of the extra room, and provide another important loop in the park! Pretty please???
(view on the map)
traffic disaster!
An intersection with 3 approaching roads, and 4 options on the opposite side, but only a TWO LIGHT cycle. Extremely dangerous for cars, pedestrians, and cyclists as all try to navigate all the options while MERGING. You could fix one of the most dangerous, pedestrian and bicycle unfriendly intersections in Philadelphia by just making this a THREE light cycle so that Spring Garden, MLK Drive, and Eakins Oval all have their own light. PLEASE??? Really wouldn't cost much.
(view on the map)
Unenforced bicycle lane
Chronically ignored crossover lane for cyclists. Drivers turning to 30th street ignore crossover, and police do not enforce. How much money could be made with enforcement of the law?
(view on the map)
Bike Lanes Needed on Rhawn Street
Rhawn Street becomes a speedway through Pennypack Park. There is enough width for bike lanes from Rowland to Lexington.
(view on the map)
Bike Path is Disconnected
To continue on Tookany Creek Bike Path you must cross this bridge with no sidewalk or crosswalk

Grays Ferry Bikeway
A critical link between South and Southwest Philadelphia. Existing conditions make it dangerous and unnavigable for many cyclists. Needs paving, bike lane and signage reconfiguration, lower speeds, and regular glass sweeping. A link to a more bike-accessible 34th Street bridge should be considered.
(view on the map)
South Philly to Port Fishington Sharrows
This is a heavily-cycled link between South Philly and Port Fishington. Columbus is not a bike-friendly alternative and 5th Street has Belgian block and a major highway junction. 4th Street could also be implemented as a north-south adjunct. The 3rd Street route links to the Moyamensing bike lane and could utilize Thompson (Girard is problematic) to connect with Frankford, another important cycleway. As this street has varying parking configurations, it would make a fantastic candidate for sharrows.
(view on the map)
In the Little City Parking Lot, in PennyPack Park.
(view on the map)
Rhawn from Rowland to Lexington
This road narrows as it becomes a bridge; and there is only a bike land on one saide of the road that is heavily used by joggers, runners, walkers, and bikers! Cars also fly from Rowland to the light at Winchester. There needs to be some traffic calming, some sharrows (or a full on bike lane), and some good signage to have cars watch out for cars on this narrow brodge/road that provides two entrances to Pennypack Park.
(view on the map)
Turning Left from Spring Garden to Art Museum
Scary intersection here. A bike specific rutning light would be great.

Need some pedestrian or bike specific lights here.

Where did the Bikelane/Shoulder on Chestnut go??
Argh!!!! Chestnut is crazy without that lane!!!

Buses parked in 1/2 of bike lane
Usually there are buses parked in all of or half of the bike lane right after the trolley stop.
(view on the map)
The bike lane ends
The bike lane ends and dumps you into a turn lane. Be cautious since many cars are using this right hand lane to turn onto 291.
(view on the map)
Bike Lane Blockage
The eastern Spruce Street bike lane is always blocked by delivery trucks and cars. Especially in front of the daycare near 5th and Spruce. 20 minute loading zones along the opposite side would help I think.
(view on the map)
Bike Lane and Sidewalk Needed
This Health Sciences Drive is not compatible for pedestrians or bicyclists who must use this to access South Street Bridge or University City Station.
(view on the map)
52nd & Lancaster
High speed vehicles plus 5 points intersection including trolley tracks result in difficult intersection to turn left from Lancaster (from the west) to 52nd.

missing bike lanes
This street has been repaved but the bike lanes were not added.
(view on the map)
This street has been repaved but the bike lanes that were there before have not been installed on the new paving.

No Sidewalk
Three medical offices along east side Hasbrook and there are no sidewalks. Angle parking is a hazard since people on foot have to walk in the street.
(view on the map)
No crosswalk or intersection control
Lots of foot traffic from SEPTA RR Station and route 70 Bus. New platform will shift passenger flow to this side of station and there will be an increase in pedestrian conflicts.
(view on the map)
Dangerous Pedestrian Crossing
On Rockwell cars turning right onto Cottman
are not yielding to people on foot.

Cars turning left out of Apartment and Car Wash are not yielding to pedestrians.

Cottman Avenue in General
Cottman Avenue needs a road diet, Reducing lanes on Cottman will benefit people on bike, foot and motorists.

Loose gravel in Bike Lane
There is a lot of gravel and debris in the bike lane making this corner particularly dangerous. I think it has to do with the run off from the plantings on the sidewalk.

Access to SRT from Market St.
Pedestrian/Bike ramp is on South side of street with difficult bike access coming from center city. Possible remedy is a pedestrian walkway with blinking light or traffic signal.
(view on the map)
Access to SRT
Stairs with bike channel difficult is on South side which is difficult to reach from center city. Need crosswalk or signal plus cuts in center roadway divider.

Access to SRT
Difficult to reach access to SRT when coming from center city. One-way roads force a very round-about path or encourage riding against traffic.

Potholes and fast traffic
The approaches to the bridge from both directions are riddled with potholes and treacherous patches. Cars zoom in this stretch making it a nervewracking gantlet to pass through.

Broken pavement; blocked access
This parking lot is riddled with potholes. Cars occasionally block path access by parking too close to the eastern edge.
(view on the map)
Potholes on path
Cuts in path improperly filled leaving deep drop-offs. Bike traffic has to swerve to avoid back-to-back hazards.
(view on the map)
Buckled path
Tree roots have buckled the path. Within a few feet, there is a badly patched section. Both are hazards.
(view on the map)
Lockers needed
Bicycle lockers or Union Station, DC, type faciilties at or near Suburban Station would benefit bike commuters. Showers needed somewhere in center city, too!!!
(view on the map)
Bike lockers
Septa should facilitate multi-modal travel at all of its stations. Major hubs would benefit from bike lockers -- weather protection and bike safety.
