Two Weeks to Go in Our Spring Pledge Drive — Support Streetsblog Today

We’re in the home stretch of the Streetsblog spring pledge drive. If you haven’t given yet, please make a donation today. Your support makes a world of difference.

When you give to Streetsblog you’re helping to set the agenda for streets and transportation policy at the national level and in cities across the country. U.S. DOT officials pay close attention to Streetsblog’s reporting. Capitol Hill staffers use our analysis to brief members of Congress. Local officials and advocates bring back to their towns best practices they first read about on Streetsblog. Small-scale struggles for better cities catch fire when they get national attention on this site.

Like many media outlets, Streetsblog is grappling with how to survive and thrive financially. We believe our readers value the impact of our reporting and will contribute to keep it going. If you agree, don’t assume other people will take care of it. Please make a secure, tax-deductible donation today. We need 250 more donations by June 1 to reach our goal!

This week, bike apparel maker Velocio has generously put up a $200 gift certificate for their goods, to be awarded to one lucky donor who gives before midnight on Tuesday.

Thank you Velocio, and thank you to everyone who’s pitched in to the pledge drive. Keep it going this week and help us finish strong.

The Streetsblog Network Needs Your Support

Managing the Streetsblog Network always keeps me on my toes. I just never know what is going to pop up in the feed in the morning. Sometimes the story is about decision-makers poised to do something short-sighted, like when local officials in Fort Worth, Texas abruptly canceled the city’s streetcar project, or when Philadelphia flirted […]

We’ve all seen the graphs: Driving and car ownership have passed their peak in America, while transit ridership and biking are on the rise. On the ground, however, city buses still move at a crawl, bogged down in traffic. Most streets remain too dangerous for most people to feel comfortable biking on them. And the […]
