About Us

Streetsblog is a daily news site that 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 USANew York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, CaliforniaChicago, 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. LouisOhio, Texas, and the southeast to provide updates and insights into local transportation policy issues.

Streetsblog USA covers federal transportation and land use policy, as well as stories around the country about how to reform our highway-centric model of transportation and development. Our daily readers include Beltway decision makers, transportation policy experts, transit advocates, urban planners, and people who just want better walking, biking, and transit for their neighborhoods.

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