The Pulse Effect

The Open Streets movement has proven to be great for local businesses! In a recent study, businesses that actively engaged with Open Streets saw up to 57% increase in sales compared to a regular business day. 

Our 2016 evaluations show that 87% Pulse participants are from the city and county, making Pulse the perfect opportunity for your business to reach thousands of new local customers.
