TODAY is a national day of action against the House transportation bill. Call your representatives and tell them you support safe accommodations for biking and walking as well as continued federal support for transit.

Story
Tagline
The national blog network for sustainable transport, smart growth and livable streets.
Introduction

Streetsblog is a daily news source connecting people to information about sustainable transportation and livable communities.

Since 2006, Streetsblog has covered the movement to transform our cities by reducing dependence on private automobiles and improving conditions for pedestrians, cyclists, and transit riders. Our reporters have broken important stories about transit funding, pedestrian safety, and bicycle policy from day one. And our writing makes arcane topics like parking prices and induced traffic accessible to a broad audience.

Today, hundreds of thousands of readers rely on Streetsblog, and our online community is the connective fiber for people all over the country working to make their streets safer and more sustainable. Streetsblog New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Capitol Hill, and the national Streetsblog Network connect local, grassroots transportation reform advocates with one another and to a national movement for reform.

Streetsblog is produced by OpenPlans, a 501c3 non-profit organization. We are funded by foundation grants, sponsorships and advertising, and through generous donations from readers like you.
