Many of Pennsylvania’s smaller cities and boroughs were rebuilt for cars in the 20th Century. In recent years,
Lancaster has sought ways for cars and bikes to peacefully co-exist. Since 2012, Lancaster has worked with

explore opportunities on how to build a culture of bicycling through private-public collaboration for planning and
implementing bike infrastructure, and encouraging and advocating for better bicycling.
