Streetsblog Needs Your Support Tonight to Keep Rolling in 2014

Tonight at midnight marks the end of Streetsblog’s spring pledge drive, and we need your contributions to helps us stay on the beat for livable streets and sustainable transportation in San Francisco in 2014.

We’re looking forward in the coming months to bringing you the details on the approaching launch of Bay Area Bike Share, advancing the discussion on transforming streets like Second and Barlett into people-friendly havens, and keeping the pressure on city leaders to increase the abysmal levels of funding for Muni and pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure.

It’s because of your contributions that we’ve been able to bring recent coverage setting the facts straight on heated issues like freeway removal, rational parking pricing, and fearmongering around parking removal for protected bike lanes on Polk Street.

If you haven’t already donated, please show your support if you care about what we do. If you have donated, thank you — and feel free to donate again! Don’t forget — those who donate $50 or more will be in the running to win a gorgeous hand-painted Belle Helmet, a Yardstash tent for your bike, or the grand prize: a Dahon folding bike.

Thanks for reading, and thanks to those who have shown their support. See you on the streets.
