Full speed ahead on Streetmix

Our humble beginnings. We look so young! (Photo by Ezra Spier.)

Six months ago, the Fellows came together for its first hackathon, and there, we created the initial prototype for Streetmix. Since then, we’ve received so many encouraging responses from users around the world, such as transportation planners in Raleigh, N.C. a community engagement specialist in Vancouver, Canada, and architects and urban designers in Brazil. As a result, we’ve continued working on Streetmix during Labs Friday and in whatever free time we could spare during our Fellowship, and already, Streetmix has helped a small communityAi??protest against widening highways inAi??Sioux Center, Iowa, visualizedAi??BRT planning in Albuquerque, N.M., shined a spotlight on bike safety in Seattle,Ai??and engaged the public onAi??streetscape master planning in Aukland, New Zealand. Someone evenAi??forked and translated Streetmix into Spanish!

Today, we’d like to announce that Streetmix is now in public beta, with a new look and new features we’re all very proud of. Check it out!

The new Streetmix, now with more transit options!
