We are the St. Louis Urbanists!

We’re a grassroots advocacy group working to create safer and more effective infrastructure for pedestrians, bicycle users, transit riders, and even car drivers in the St. Louis region. We promote better urban design through community-building, education, political advocacy, and direct action.
