Grid Chicago is parked. Come join us at Streetsblog Chicago!


We’ve come to the end of our journey with Grid Chicago, but we’ve embarked on a new one with Streetsblog Chicago. Since June 2011 we’ve had a great time covering Chicago’s burgeoning sustainable transportation scene on this website, and we hope you’ve enjoyed reading about it. Grid Chicago is going dormant but the site will remain online as an archive. Feel free to browse our older articles about walking, biking and transit issues under the first two years of the Emanuel administration. Hopefully these posts will serve as a useful record of this exciting period in our city’s history.

As of January 22, 2013, Steven Vance and John Greenfield are writing Streetsblog Chicago, the latest addition to the Streetsblog family of transportation news websites. We’ll be publishing more frequently about a wider range of transportation and public space topics, with more of a focus on late-breaking news. We’re also adding new features like Today’s Headlines, a round-up of transportation stories from a wide variety of local publications. We’ll also be posting articles from the Streetsblog network about U.S. transportation policy and issues happening in other parts of the country. We’re confident that the new format will help keep you better informed about local and national topics. It will also bring more attention to the movement to turn Chicago into a safer, more convenient and more fun place to walk, bike and take transit.

We hope to hear from you soon on the new website. Thanks again for joining us on this excursion. It’s been a great ride so far, and the road ahead looks promising.

  1. Congratulations, guys. I’ll miss the gridchicago format, even if I did disagree with you most of the time. (Insert winky smiley face.) I wish you the best of luck in the new digs!
