As Commuter Services Bureau Chief of Arlington's, DOT, I lead the largest, most innovative TDM/mobility management team in North America. Our mission is to make it easy for people to take transit, bike, and walk rather than drive alone. Over the last 20 years I've helped pioneer the use of Commuter Stores, online fare purchases, innovative marketing, B2B solutions, walk and bike encouragement, the east coast's first on-street carshare, TDM for Site Plan Development, impactful research through our Mobility Lab and the USA's first major bikeshare program. Research says there's a host of benefits and analysis concludes these programs remove 42,000 SOV trips daily. This maximizes smart-growth policies and investment in transportation infrastructure. Traffic hasn't increased in two decades. The result is Arlington's tax base, business climate and quality of life are the envy of cities worldwide.
I live car-free in my native DC.
