Each day during the summer and fall an average of 36,000 trips are made on Citi Bike, New York’s new bike share system. This is what two average weekdays in September looks like.

Love this new campaign from L.A. Metro. They have one of the best  Communications and Marketing teams of any transit agency in the US or elsewhere.
Here’s more about the campaign. 
And here’a nifty video EMBARQ did about their Marketing team a while back.

#ExxonHatesYourChildren. No comment.

Top: How they promote scarves. Bottom: How we promote bikes. 

Leafing through the NYTimes’s newly redesigned T Magazine this weekend I came across the top image. A pity bike advocates don’t think a bit more like scarf salesman…

A well-designed branding campaign helped make supports of the Kansas City Downtown Streetcar visible through window clings on local businesses and t-shirts (worn at public meetings). The effort was coordinated by Streetcar Neighbors, a citizen’s group that helped win a new streetcar for Kansas City. It’s expected to go live in the summer of 2015.

God Created Transit

A little long, but heartfelt riff on the Dodge Ram Superbowl ad “God Made a Farmer.” 

In honor of this week’s trip to Kansas City for the New Partners for Smart Growth Conference and a Streetsblog Network training, I bring you an ad for transit in Kansas City. The ad was created by the Kansas City Regional Transit Alliance in support of a referendum to fund the Kansas City Streetcar project, which passed this fall. The 2 mile streetcar is projected to open in 2015. 

h/t to KCLightRail for the ad.

I recently took the trip of a lifetime (or at least the decade!) and went to Burma. These are girls on bikes in New Bagan. Throughout the rest of the country one of my favorite moments was seeing kids rushing home on bikes for lunch.
