Janette Sadie-Khan is one of the leading voices on urban transportation policy and she is internationally respected for her transformative redesigns of New York City streets and rapid implementation strategies that are being replicated today in cities all around the world. From 2007 to 2013, she was Commissioner of the New York City Department of Transportation under Mayor Michael Bloomberg, leading one of the most sweeping revitalizations of the city’s streets in half a century. New York City added nearly 400 miles of bike lanes and the first parking-protected bike paths in North America during her tenure.

She advises mayors of cities around the world as a principal at Bloomberg Associates, a philanthropic consultancy established by Michael Bloomberg to help cities around the world improve the quality of life of their citizens. From Los Angeles to Mexico City to Rio to Athens, she also assists mayors and their teams in developing street redesigns. As chair of the National Association of Transportation Officials (NACTO), an organization of transportation commissioners and directors in 38 cities, she led the development and publication of NACTO’s Global and Urban Street Design Guides and the Urban Bikeway Design Guide. The new standards in these documents have been recognized by USDOT and adopted by 40 cities worldwide.
