Janette Sadik-Khan is a transportation superstar in North America. As New York City’s Transportation Commissioner, she helped introduce protected bike lanes, pedestrian plazas, sustainable street designs and, most dramatically, closed five blocks of Broadway in Times Square to vehicles — while improving traffic flow!

Find out how she transformed New York and how that could affect us, our health, and our urban environments. 

These lectures are sponsored by the Bombardier Foundation and the Active Transport Lab at the University of British Columbia and BC Recreation and Parks Association. Program partner: Simon Fraser University City Program. http://www.physicalactivitystrategy.ca www.act-trans.ubc.ca
