Pedaling the Pueblo – Street Ambassador Team to Gather Public Input for Move Tucson

In this episode we chat with Selina Barajas a planner and community organizer working to bring Street Ambassadors from the Tucson Department of Transportation and Mobility out to communities to gather input from people for the Move Tucson master plan initiative.

Street Ambassadors receive stipends to work out in the community and talk to folks about their transportation planning priorities. You’ll see them at grocery stores, community centers, transit centers or where ever people are during their normal day-to-day lives. This is different from traditional forms of public engagement which requires people to take time out of their days to attend an open house or public meeting if they wanted their voices heard.

Selina talks about her hopes for the program, and planning in general, and how she envisions it can be more inclusive of all kinds of folks in the community.

Pedaling the Pueblo – Street Ambassador Team to Gather Public Input for Move Tucson


Pedaling the Pueblo is a mini-program and podcast that connects people to news and information about Tucson’s bicycle culture. A collective of bicycle enthusiasts host and produce weekly programs covering a wide variety of topics. From community events to questions about how bicycle funding works; tips to start riding more to interviews with local bicycling legends, Pedaling the Pueblo explores life on two wheels from a “people first” approach, allowing us all to have an open dialogue about how people move through our shared built environment.

Content is responsive to and driven by the community, so if you have a question or topic you’d like to hear covered, email us at [email protected]. You can also find us on Facebook.][ke
