Back Key to the Street on Kickstarter

Jessica Lowry

January 15, 2014

How much do you care about walkable, safe streets?

Most of us have a lot of good ideas, but few of us take the time to attend community meetings at City Hall. Without your input it's really hard for city planners to design streets with you in mind. A good idea becomes great when it's put into action.

Key to the Street is a service you access using your cell phone. You participate by visiting a mobile website or calling a toll-free number. The City of Austin is ready to pilot this service in a real city planning project, but we need your help to make this happen.

Every aspect of Key to the Street is built for you. For the past year, we've been working to collect input from everyone about why walking matters and how Key to the Street can help raise the profile of pedestrians.
