Send Us Your Ideas and Photos About Improving Denver’s Transport System for Women

For our Women's Movement event, we're asking readers to share images and ideas about the unique problems women face while trying to get around Denver and — importantly — how you think they can be fixed.

You may have heard that Streetsblog is hosting a conversation May 10 about how the transportation system works (and doesn’t) for women — and how to make it better. If you haven’t registered, please do! Space is limited.

Streetsblog, along with our sponsors WTS and the Women’s Network at Black Creek, would love your help shaping the conversation.

Leading up to the event, share images and ideas about the unique problems women face while trying to get around Denver and — importantly — how you think they can be fixed. This could mean changing how projects get planned in a male-dominated industry. It could mean more lighting at bus stops. You tell us.

Hit us up on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. You can use the hashtag #MovingDenver or tag @StreetsblogDen and we could use your prompts next Thursday.

Thanks and see you next week.

    Thanks for doing this, and I’ll try to be there. However, I’m sort of at a loss at what to recommend. I’ve been bicycle commuting in Denver for 50 years, with really no problems, except the idiot motorists amd lack of infrastructure, of course, but I don’t think that’s unique to women. I think a lot of it is perception. Somehow women need to build the confidence to do it; that goes a long way. In addition, I do confess I try to “look male”: I have short hair and I ride a “men’s” bike.
