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.
With the launch of Streetsblog Chicago in 2013, we’re publishing a wide-ranging, daily news source where Chicagoans can plug in to efforts to make their streets more livable. There’s a long way to go to re-orient Chicago’s streets toward effective transit and safe walking and biking, and getting from here to there won’t be simple or quick. Streetsblog helps map the route.
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, Chicago, Capitol Hill, and the national Streetsblog Network connect local, grassroots transportation reform advocates with one another and to a national movement for reform.
Streetsblog Chicago is published by OpenPlans, a 501c3 non-profit organization. We are funded by foundation grants, sponsorships and advertising, and through generous donations from readers like you.
