The Cambridgeshire Guided Busway

Just when you think you've seen everything in the transportation world, you encounter something different. That happened to me on an infrastructure tour in Cambridge, England, when my guides showed be this guided busway. The video only shows a short segment of The Busway, but it's fascinating. The wheels of the bus run between grooved concrete slabs along an old […]

May Streetfilms Shorties You May Have Missed

Often we make short Streetfilms that do not officially get posted on the main site for one reason or another. They may just be quickly edited videos not destined to be up for the long haul or short clips for Streetsblog. Or ones we just don't expected to have too much interest nationwide. Here's a pretty inspiring video […]

NYC’s Varick Street Gets a Granite Bike Path

As any bicyclist can tell you, a bumpy ride on cobblestones is no fun. In NYC, the DOT has implemented its first granite bikeway on one block of Varick Street to make it easier for cyclists and to keep them off the sidewalks. You will almost never see me on a sidewalk in NYC for any reason, […]

The Philadelphia Bike Story

Of U.S. cities with more than a million residents, the one where people bike the most is Philadelphia. In 2012, the U.S. Census estimated Philadelphia’s bicycle commute rate at 2.3 percent [PDF], higher than Chicago (1.6 percent) and New York (1.0 percent). It's just about always been that way. That comes as a surprise to many people, since Philadelphia doesn't have […]

CNU23: A Wrap Up of My Experience in Dallas & Ft. Worth

Had a great time at the Congress for New Urbanism Conference in Dallas. It's always great being around transportation & planning people for a few days. Dallas is a city with many challenges and hopefully many of the minds in attendance made an impact in helping the intrepid advocates there gain more momentum. One of the […]

Freeways Without Futures: I-345 in Dallas

In this Streetfilm, Patrick Kennedy, founder of A New Dallas, talks about the movement to replace Interstate 345 in downtown Dallas with connected streets and walkable development. Shot at the "Freeways Without Futures" session at the Congress for New Urbanism's recent conference in Dallas, the piece provides views of I-345 from heights most people never get to see. Kennedy was joined […]

Bike-Share Comes to Philly With the Launch of Indego

On Thursday, Philadelphia's long wait for a bike-share system came to an end with the launch of the 60-station, 600-bike Indego system, which is set to expand in the near future. At the kickoff, volunteers and officials -- including Mayor Michael Nutter -- rode about half of those bikes to their docking stations. I got to talk to […]

Right of Way Installs 2014 Memorial Wall to 264 Victims of NYC Traffic Violence

On Saturday, Right of Way posted silhouettes along a Kent Avenue construction fence representing all 264 people known to have lost their lives to traffic violence in NYC in 2014. Each image was identical, save for victims’ names and crash dates. Smaller silhouettes were posted to represent children killed by drivers. It was a very emotional scene as members of Families […]

Host Your Own FREE Streetfilms Screening!

Earlier this week I was in Albany for a Streetfilms screening as a guest of the Albany Protected Bike Lanes Coalition, a group fighting for better bicycling in New York's capital. About 135 people attended and they did just about everything you can do right when it comes to holding a great rallying event for […]

Introducing “Streetfilms Snippets”, More Video Tools for You

Our digital entertainment is all about faster & quicker. The general public has an increasingly shorter attention span. I know I've watched since Youtube's debut in 2005 as the public's ability to watch an entire video - even a good, short one - has become challenged. This is something I've been wrestling with as occassionally we have some Streetfilms that approach 10+ minutes in […]

Tour de Staten Island 2015

Transportation Alternatives' 5th annual Tour de Staten Island showed off some of the best biking highlights in S.I.

Some NEW Parking Streetfilms You May Have Missed

We've recently posted a few parking "best practices" direct to Vimeos for use by Streetsblog that you likely haven't seen if you don't check both sites frequently. (Which Streetfilms wholeheartedly endorses.) First up: We're big fans of the work of Gabe Klein, the former DOT Commissioner for both District of Columbia & Chicago. While I was filming for a project looking at […]

Exploring the Streets of Stockholm

In 2014, I got the chance to visit Stockholm near the end of an incredibly hot summer. It's a charming and walkable place with a downtown buzzing with people. There's an easygoing rhythm to the city. After dark the pedestrian streets fill with both residents and tourists out for a walk, even after most stores and restaurants close. I met up with a great mix of […]

Streetfilms Excerpts will help you change your community even more!

In an effort to continually help advocates, elected leaders and communities use our productions to fight for change in their neighborhoods, I am always looking for ways to manage our content better, despite only being a busy staff of one. (Yes, that's right for all those who write in weekly asking us to send Streetfilms […]

National Bike Summit 2015: Talking “Bikes Plus”

The theme of this year's National Bike Summit in Washington, DC, is "Bikes+" or, as the League of American Bicyclists puts it, "how bikes can add value to other movements and how our movement can expand to serve broader interests." We decided to have some fun with the theme and ask attendees what they would add to that […]
