A big conference for advocates of walking and biking is being held in downtown Pittsburgh this week and to celebrate Pittsburgh International Airport has installed a bike assembly station in Baggage Claim with various tools, wrenches and an air pump for travelers to use to re-assemble bikes near Baggage Claim P.

The airport has also reopened access to the airport spur of the Montour Trail, which had been closed due to construction.

At least two other airports have bicycle assembly stations on-site: Oregon’s Portland International Airport and San Francisco International Airport.
