Transit needs to be reliable to be useful. Invest in trains and busses. Invest in frequent all night service on all routes. Make it free at point of service. Build it and they will come. Ban cars (close streets to cars) and defund and demolish highways.

Bus and bike lanes made of paint are bare minimum here folks. They cost us nothing and provide the goods, but we can do so much more and we need to. So plz go write a local elected and demand funding.

Honestly we could close half of our grid to cars and car folk would still be within a block of their parking spot if the other streets were 24/7 public transit and bike/pedestrian broadways.

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
