About Us

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, ChicagoUSA, and the national Streetsblog Network connect local, grassroots transportation reform advocates with one another and to a national movement for reform.

Streetsblog USA covers federal transportation and land use policy, as well as trends from around the country. The reauthorization of the surface transportation program is our bread and butter, but we don’t get trapped in a beltway mindset: We also report on movements around the country to ditch the antiquated highway-centric model for a more sustainable transportation system. Our daily readers include members of Congress and the administration, transportation experts and reporters, sustainability advocates, urban planners, and others who want a more walkable, bikeable, sustainable planet.

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.
