Meet Gabe Klein. Gabe recently resigned asTransportation Commissioner for the City of Chicago. He is responsible for two of the most successful bikeshare programs in the U.S: Divvy in Chicago, and, before that, Capital Bikeshare in Washington, D.C.
In Chicago, Divvy has grown to about 3,000 bicycles at 300 bike-docking stations, providing more than 600,000 trips and 1.5 million miles. In D.C., as District Department of Transportation Director, he launched the largest bikeshare program in U.S. in less than 1 year. And his successes go beyond bikes, transforming policies from traffic congestion to pedestrians and streetcars.
Entrepreneurial yet collaborative, Gabe makes new mobility strategies work smoothly. As Los Angeles moves forward – including with Mayor Garcetti’s Great Streets Initiative and MTA’s regional bikeshare program – Gabe has much to say.
