We’re working towards cities where communities are partners in shaping neighborhoods, where transportation systems are designed in collaboration with everyone who rides them, and where planners and other professionals are engaging the public in ongoing, productive conversations about positive change.
OpenPlans is a 501(c)3. In addition to our current transportation and planning work, we previously incubated and launched Boundless (formerly OpenGeo), Streetfilms, Streetsblog, and Chalkbeat (formerly GothamSchools). Our previous open source software work has included substantial contributions to projects like OpenTripPlanner and OpenTripPlanner Analyst, and more.

Who's got OpenPlans?
Our day-to-day work is spent creating beautiful, effective online tools to gather public input and share information. We’re proud to have partnered with cities large and small on projects, and we have a great track record of making tangible steps towards a better planning process.
