Today’s Headlines

I’m walking with a cane these days but it hasn’t stopped me from participating in Streetsblog California’s virtual walkathon/bikeathon fundraiser, proceeds from which will be split 50/50 with California food banks. Heavy-handed guilt trip? Sure. If you benefit from the work we do to keep you informed about California sustainable transportation policies, plans, and news, then please support us if you can. Donate here. Share a picture of your walk or bike trip on social media (I’ve posted some nice ones) with the ungainly tag #Walk4Streetsblog or #Bike4Streetsblog.
