Happy Holidays From Streetsblog Los Angeles

Enjoy some Metro rail caroling courtesy of RailLA! Streetsblog Los Angeles will be off for the holidays tomorrow and Friday. From the team who brings you Streetsblog, we wish you safe and fun holiday celebrations, a beautiful commemorative unlimited-use TAP card in your presents, and a year ahead of increasingly walkable and bikeable streets!

On Monday December 28, SBLA returns with three days worth of posts announcing the 2015 Streetsie award nominees. Please weigh in on your favorite livability leaders, from the elected, agency, business, media, and advocacy fields. Reader polls will be published December 28, 29, and 30 with voting extended through Tuesday January 5.

Lastly, if you enjoy SBLA and you’re in a position to give back, consider making a year-end donation.

p.s. if you’re looking for something streetsbloggy to pass the time on, check out and vote in Streetsblog USA’s polls for the best and worst of 2015.
