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.
