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.

In 2008, Streetsblog launched its first edition “beyond the five boroughs,” Los Angeles Streetsblog.  Streetsblog’s Southern California reporting has earned praise from local politicians, advocates and publications for loudly and clearly articulating a Livable Streets message in the Car Culture Capital of the World.  L.A. Weekly has twice named Streetsblog the “Best Local Advocacy Website” in Los Angeles.

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.

L.A. Streetsblog is published by OpenPlans and edited by the Southern California Streets Initiative.  Both groups are 501c3 non-profit organizations. We are funded by foundation grants, sponsorships and advertising, and through generous donations from readers like you.
