Urban mobility: novel approach by the Windy City

Gabe Klein is considered a rock star of urban transportation in the United States. As Transportation Director in Washington between 2008 and 2010, he developed an innovative user-oriented approach, based on 2.0 technologies. He also put Washington on the map of bicycle-friendly cities by building D.C.’s first separated bike lanes and creating the country’s first and largest bike sharing system.

Since May 2011, he has been working with Mayor Rahm Emanuel, as Transportation Commissioner, to make Chicago the most progressive city for public mobility and transit, particualry by creating a world-class cycling network. In his lecture, Gabe Klein will share his vision of transportation and the city of tomorrow.
