As Philadelphia’s transportation needs evolve, the City is preparing to address congestion and roll out new bike lanes and SEPTA is rethinking its bus routes. Like cities everywhere, Philadelphia also needs to plan for the impact of ride-sharing, delivery trucks or maybe soon, autonomous vehicles. Given the challenges, it is valuable to learn how other cities are approaching these issues.

She was a principal with Nelson Nygaard, serving as the Multimodal Sector Leader in their Washington, DC office, managing major mobility projects for Boston, Chicago and, Portland, Oregon.
