NYC Transport Commissioner to Deliver Keynote Address at BAQ 2010

New York is an impressive example of a metropolitan city taking a different approach to city development that involves collaboration between government and stakeholders. Ms. Janette Sadik-Khan, Commissioner of the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT), will be the keynote speaker at the Better Air Quality (BAQ) 2010 Conference to inspire cities in Asia take similar action.

Since her appointment by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg in April of 2007, Ms. Sadik-Khan has implemented an ambitious program to improve safety, mobility and sustainability throughout New York City, including the maintenance of roads and bridges. In April 2008 the NYCDOT published its strategic plan, "Sustainable Streets." Important projects in this plan include the first “Select Bus Service” routes for NYC, the NYC Plaza Program, the creation of Broadway Boulevard in midtown Manhattan, the addition of 200 miles of on-street bike lanes, car-free summer streets, and weekend pedestrian walks. In January 2009, New York won the prestigious Sustainable Transport Award (http://www.st-award.org) for its achievements.

Ms. Sadik-Khan is also President of the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO), and Chair of the Transportation Research Board’s (TRB) Committee on Transportation Issues in Major U.S. Cities. She has published widely on transportation policy, planning, and finance and project management. She holds a law degree from Columbia University School of Law.
