Biking Downtown Pittsburgh

Biking

Pittsburgh today is known as a city that supports and encourages bicycling, from protected bike lanes to bike shares to bike parking. Here are some of your options if you want to bike to or around Downtown.

Bicycle Racks in Downtown parking garages and on Port Authority buses
Do you live at the StarLoftsPgh luxury apartments? You are on Penn Av, which has dedicated bike lanes. All Port Authority bus routes are equipped with bike racks. Bikes can also be brought aboard the T or Mon Incline at any time and stowed in the designated wheel chair spaces.

What to do with your bike once you’re in Downtown ? All of the Pittsburgh Parking Authority Garages have free sheltered bike racks for public use. Click here to see a map of where the garages with bike parking are located. In addition, the Third Avenue Garage has a fix-it station open to the public and secure bike parking for lease.
