Seleta Reynolds and Janette Sadik-Khan discuss innovative changes for transportation infrastructure in major cities, including ways to make urban streets more friendly for people who walk, roll, bike, ride transit and drive.

Seleta Reynolds is general manager of the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, where she oversees an annual budget of $526 million and leads the day-to-day operations of 2,000 employees managing more than 6,500 miles of streets, 35,000 parking meters, and the most advanced traffic signal system in the country. Reynolds is responsible for implementing Great Streets for Los Angeles, a plan to reduce traffic fatalities, double the number of people riding bikes, and expand access to integrated transportation choices. Janette Sadik-Khan served as Commissioner of the New York City Department of Transportation (NYC DOT) from 2007-2013, where she implemented an ambitious program to improve safety, mobility and sustainability, and ensure a state of good repair on the city’s roads, bridges and ferries. At Bloomberg Associates, she works with mayors around the world to reimagine and redesign their cities with innovative projects that can be developed quickly and inexpensively.
