Streetsblog Denver Will Start Posting Stories From Around America This Week

Screen Shot 2015-06-08 at 9.38.24 AM

The reaction to Streetsblog Denver has been heartening in the five weeks we’ve been covering sustainable transportation and livable streets here.

We’ve heard from readers and policy makers that Streetsblog has already contributed to the local conversation on streets and transportation issues, challenging long-held assumptions and promoting ideas that had been missing from Denver’s public debate.

Our coverage of Denver and Colorado is what’s most relevant to you and most important to our mission, but we also realize that our region doesn’t exist in a vacuum. There are stories about transportation reform happening all over the country — stories that our readers will find illuminating, engaging, and applicable to situations they encounter here at home. All other Streetsblog sites syndicate these posts of national interest, and soon we’ll start bringing you those stories, too.

Our national content comes from two sources: the Streetsblog Network, a collective of hundreds of independent writers who cover the same types of topics we write about here, and Streetsblog USA, which covers federal transportation policy and noteworthy livable streets news from around the nation. Whether it’s decisions being made in Washington, DC, or good ideas from other cities that Denver might heed, syndicating this Streetsblog content will make the conversation around biking, walking, and transit more robust here.

So look forward to more content and more context on Streetsblog Denver every day, starting this week.
