DescriptionTransport-obsessed site Streetsblog—which focuses on everything from bike lines to subway fare hikes—was born appropriately in transport-obsessed New York City. Originally launched in 2006 by Aaron Naparstek it has since branched out to cover transportation in San Francisco Los Angeles and Washington D.C. Streetsblog has its origins in the advocacy movement focusing on local transportation and street safety issues in the hope of creating a more navigable terrain for those city dwellers traveling sans car. The Streetsblog team’s goal: to influence policy while building a reader base of like-minded and concerned citizens.
