Downtown Bike Lane Demonstration

Join us for a fun morning of biking in the Borough! A temporary bike lane will be created in the right turn lane on Market Street between Darlington and Church Streets and a safe shared bike lane headed south on S. Church Street to Sharpless Street and north on Darlington Street. Temporary paint, delineators and signage will mark the bicycle route and notify motorists. 

Created by the Transportation Management Association of Chester County (TMACC), this tactical urban demonstration project will create a fun, safe area for biking in the Borough and demonstrate how driving, parking, and biking are compatible even in busy, confined areas. 

Come out for a spin!
