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. Our movement aims to promote better urban design through education, organization, and engagement at every level.

We hope to create a community for like-minded individuals to hang out and discuss transportation, urban design, local politics, and other similar topics. You can join us at our online Discord server, where we share tactical wins, post resources, and discuss local issues.

Additionally, we have a number of in-person meetups every month. Our main group meetings are open to all, and held on the second Sunday of every month. We also run a monthly book club, a monthly social bike ride, and run BusBikeBrunch. To see the location details of all our meetups, check out our Meetup group.
