Sidewalks, buses, transit lines, bike lanes, pedestrians, and plants all share space on our city streets, and it's not always harmonious. Streetmix is software that lets you customize your street by setting the width, adding the elements above, and then sharing your work. In its first six months, Streetmix has been used to protest a highway widening in Iowa, draw attention to bike safety in Seattle, and campaign for new bus routes in New Mexico.
