Vote for Streetsblog

Apologies for a little bit of self-promotion, but there are only about ten hours left to vote for Streetsblog in Treehugger’s Best-of-Green awards. We’re up for Best Transportation Website, and we stand out a little because Streetsblog is all about transit, biking, and walking, while the other worthy contenders are all largely about hybrid, electric, and low emissions cars.

We’ve probably benefited from some vote splitting among readers of the green car sites, but Streetsblog still trails the current frontrunner, EcoModder, by a little less than 100 votes. (EcoModder covers how to modify your car or motorcycle to achieve greater fuel efficiency.) Voting ends at midnight tonight, and I think a final push from our readers could put Streetsblog over the top, like a last-minute bid on eBay.
