How are cities across North America making the most efficient use of their limited transportation resources, and achieving larger job creation, resilience, public health, equity and human happiness goals?
Jeff Tumlin has the answers.
Jeff Tumlin is an owner and sustainability practice leader of NelsonNygaard Consulting Associates, a San Francisco-based transportation planning and engineering firm that focuses on sustainable mobility.
He is singlehandedly changing the way America thinks about transportation. Instead of measuring success by how many freeways a city has, Tumlin is showing that transportation choices (including design for bikes and pedestrians) can improve public health, happiness, and social vitality—and save city budgets. He is the author of Sustainable Transportation Planning: Tools for Creating Vibrant, Healthy, and Resilient Communities (Wiley, February 2012).
