Tour de Streets is rolling along! In order to make our goals, we need to raise $50k in the remaining ten days of December - but luckily, we've got a gift to help get us there. That's right, it's our annual 10 day $10k challenge! Every dollar donated will be matched up to $10,000. It's the perfect time to ask someone to make a donation to your favorite Tour de Streets fundraiser - you'll be giving us twice as much support!

Ammi Hosur
Luli Lobos

LivableStreets is in a season of change! We’re excited to welcome new faces to our team, and wistful to see others go.

Ammi Hosur, our new Program Assistant, has been taking LivableStreets by storm in her first week. The newest member of our team, she is exceedingly passionate and driven, already working hard to support staff and help our organization run smoothly. We hope you’ll join us in welcoming Ammi; you can drop her a note at her new email: [email protected].

And we are equally sad to say goodbye to Luli Lobos, who has been with us for many years. She leaves behind a legacy at LivableStreets with her Gender and Mobility Initiative! Her LivableStreets email is still active for a little while, so you can drop her a note of well wishes on her next journey here: [email protected].

Street Ambassadors on Columbus Ave

Three Street Ambassadors, wearing face masks, hold surveys on clipboards facing the camera. Behind them are the Columbus Ave center-running bus lanes.

Street Ambassadors were out speaking with bus riders using the new center-running bus lanes on Columbus Ave over the past few weeks. We heard overwhelming enthusiasm for the new bus lanes, that their bus trips are faster, and lots of love for the new real-time arrival signs (telling people both visually and via audio when the next bus arrives). We will be summarizing this data and sharing it with the City of Boston and MBTA so that bus riders' experiences inform the future designs of center-running bus lanes. Thanks to the many of you who took part in the surveying efforts. 

Do you want to join us in speaking with people about a future project? Sign up to be a Street Ambassador today!


Office Closure

Another year of hard work comes to a close at the LivableStreets office! Our team will be taking time off to rest and relax after a hectic year. Our (virtual) office will be closed on December 23rd and will reopen January 3rd.

And there have been some changes to our workplace this year! A few months ago, we officially updated our office hours so every Friday our work day ends at 1pm. We are a hardworking and passionate team, and our goal with this change is to promote staff well-being. We are excited to carry this new policy into the new year, and are looking forward to starting 2022!
