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 community protest against widening highways in Sioux Center, Iowa, visualized BRT planning in Albuquerque, N.M., shined a spotlight on bike safety in Seattle, and engaged the public on streetscape master planning in Aukland, New Zealand. Someone even 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!

For more updates as they occur, follow our twitter @streetmixapp and our new blog, where we’ll continue to share our thoughts on streets and public spaces, new features, and more interviews!
