Streetsblog connects people to information about how to reduce dependence on cars and improve conditions for walking, biking, and transit. Since 2006, our reporters have broken important stories about efforts to prevent pedestrian injuries and deaths, build out bicycle networks, and make transit more useful. Our writing raises the profile of these issues with policy makers and makes arcane topics like parking requirements and induced traffic accessible to a broad audience.
Today, hundreds of thousands of readers rely on Streetsblog and our video production partners at Streetfilms to link into a national movement for transportation reform. Streetsblog USA, New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, California, Chicago, and Denver produce original reporting and commentary that aims to change the cars-first status quo on their cities’ streets. We also work with regional partners in St. Louis, Ohio, Texas, and the southeast to provide updates and insights into local transportation policy issues.
Our work is funded by foundation grants, sponsorships and advertising, and generous donations from readers like you.
