Give to Streetsblog NYC and Your Contribution Will Be Doubled. Doubled!

Your donation to Streetsblog will go twice as far if you contribute to our year-end pledge drive by December 31. Thanks to a generous anonymous donor, all contributions to Streetsblog NYC will be matched up to $10,000 — you’ll get more bang for your livable streets buck by giving today.

In just a few days there’s going to be a new mayor in City Hall — we can’t take progress on street safety and better surface transit for granted. Bill de Blasio ran on a very good streets and transportation platform, and Streetsblog won’t let his administration forget it.

To push for more livable streets in NYC, we need your help. If you value our coverage of street safety and transit issues, this is a great opportunity to stretch your philanthropic dollar.

We have a new giveaway this week — a TiGr titanium bike lock. Everyone who contributes before midnight Sunday will be entered to win this sleek instrument to secure your steed:

One of these sleek bike locks is going to a reader who gives $50 or more by Sunday at midnight.

Also, don’t forget, everyone who gives $50 or more before the end of the year will also be eligible to take home a new Public C7 or V7 bicycle. We have bikes to give away to two lucky readers:

Thanks to everyone who’s contributed so far — every donation helps! (And special thanks to you, generous anonymous donor.)

Check out those three low-floor doors for easy-on, easy-off boarding and alighting. The MallRide travels up and down a mile-long pedestrian mall — the only vehicle allowed there — arriving every 90 seconds. It’s […]
