About the Department of Mobility and Infrastructure

The Department of Mobility and Infrastructure was established by Ordinances 15, 16 and 17 of 2017. It is the newest department of the City of Pittsburgh.

The Department is responsible for the transportation of people and goods throughout the City of Pittsburgh, and for managing the operation of and access to the public right-of-way (the sidewalks, curbs, streets, and bridges that make up our network).

City's Mobility Principles:

  1. No one dies or is seriously injured traveling on city streets (streets and intersections are intuitive to use, even by an adolescent child).
  2. Every resident can access fresh fruits and vegetables within 20 minutes travel of home (without requiring a private vehicle).
  3. All trips less than 1 mile are easy and enjoyable to achieve by non-vehicle travel.
  4. No household must spend more than 45% of income on housing + transportation + energy (for any income quintile).
  5. Our streets reflect the values and pride of our city.
