Love Solutions Journalism? Help Us Do Way More

Many of you tell us you're searching for hope in tough times. We hear you. That’s why we want to supercharge the amount of solutions-focused reporting we do in 2023.

Solutions journalism doesn’t stop at asking what went wrong yesterday. It investigates what might go right tomorrow — and who is showing the way.

We won’t stop zeroing in on the worst practices of those in power. But democracy needs news about best practices, too, so we can take them up and make the world a happier, healthier place.

Pledge what you can. Cancel any time. Help us hit our $75,000 goal by Dec. 31!

Mobility Solutions to Our Autopia
(click to read in context)

The great irony of multi-use paths is the more varied the user base, the more potential for conflict.

Many would argue the answer is not multi-use paths, but multiple paths. Appropriately sized lanes to accommodate non-automotive users inclusive for disabled, novice and self-propelled people, while letting speedier modes (e-bikes) travel together, but without cars to contend with.

The paucity of public space carved out of our blessed autopia makes this challenging.

Chris Keam, in response to “What If Bike Lanes Worked Better for the Disability Community?”
