Our Streets Minneapolis works for a city where biking, walking, and rolling are easy and comfortable for everyone. 

 

 We envision a city where:

    • Biking, walking, and rolling are easy and joyful for people of all backgrounds and identities in all parts of Minneapolis;
    • Streets and trails are vibrant community spaces with people walking and biking year-round;
    • Kids and families feel safe and comfortable walking and biking to neighborhood schools, parks, and businesses;
    • Older adults and people with mobility challenges are healthy, independent, and connected with their communities through streets and sidewalks designed for them; and
    • Abundant biking and walking contributes to happy people, a healthy environment, and a strong economy.

 

Our organization was founded as the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition. Read more about our name change here.

    Hot Take: MnDOT's Pathways to Decarbonizing Transportation

    MnDOT (Minnesota Department of Transportation) is hosting public meetings around the state to talk with the public about how we can fight the climate crisis and reduce emissions from transportation by 80% (or even 100%!) by 2050. These meetings are part of a project called Pathways to Decarbonizing Transportation. As part of this project, MnDOT is meeting with local community members and stakeholders. Our Streets Minneapolis is one of the stakeholders that participated in this engagement process from the start.  

    I attended the Twin Cities public meeting on Tuesday night at the Minneapolis Urban League in North Minneapolis. Despite the heavy rain and thunderstorm, there were nearly 100 people in the room and good energy. Staff from the Great Plains Institute shared their models of how we can dramatically reduce emissions through mode shift, vehicle electrification, and other strategies.

    Downtown Bikeways Work Group leads ride, pit stops on Bike to Work Day

    The Downtown Bikeways crew volunteered in a couple of different ways on Twin Cities Bike to Work Day on May 17th. One of our members led a Bike to Work ride with Council Member Palmisano from Ward 13 in South Minneapolis. Several other members staffed Bike to Work Day “pit stops” along the Downtown-Whittier corridor during the morning and evening commute. Everybody reported having a lot of fun! At the last Downtown Bikeways work group meeting, we all shared our insights from the event.
