The Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities “makes sure that the investments and plans that affect the city’s infrastructure and the people who use it are done with a shared vision of increased mobility and sustainability.”
And as such, MOTU has a Bike/Ped coordinator, making sure planned bike and pedestrian facilities and infrastructure gets done.
Former Bike/Ped coordinator Charles Carmalt recently retired and we were very excited to learn that Jeannette Brugger, formerly of the Planning Commission, will be taking over as Philadelphia’s new Bike/Ped Coordinator.
Ms. Brugger worked with the Planning Commission for four-and-a-half years, focusing on pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular transportation planning and implementation citywide. She helped draft the Philadelphia Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan in 2012 and was the primary author of the Philadelphia Trail Master Plan in 2013.
Ms. Brugger has worked in the non-profit, private, and public sectors in transportation, open space, and land use planning in the Philadelphia region since 2005. She received a BA from New York University in 2002 and an MCP from the University of Pennsylvania in 2005.
We’re super psyched to have her on board.
