Speaker

Jeffrey Tumlin 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).
