How can we improve commutes to work?
As part of our effort to educate ourselves, we've invited Steve Raney, the Executive Director for Joint Venture of Silicon Valley's Smart Mobility project. Smart Mobility is working to integrate employer programs with mobility software to provide a seamless, door-to-door combination of transportation modes —including public and private transit, bikeshare, rideshare, carshare, vanpool, taxi, employer commute benefits, electric scooter/bike lease, pay-by-phone parking, — to outcompete private auto ownership.
Steve's background includes:
* Principal Investigator for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s “Transforming Office Parks into Transit Villages” Study
* Led BART’s Group Rapid Transit Study
* Conceived Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s $33 million Climate Innovations Grant Program.
* Led Ultra Global Personal Rapid Transit’s North American operations. At London Heathrow Terminal 5, Ultra became the world’s second PRT electric vehicle transit system. With Ultra, Steve led last mile transit studies for Raleigh, Austin, San Jose Airport, Palo Alto, Pleasanton, Edina, Microsoft, and Oakland Airport, developing the first profitable public private partnership business models.
