As Designing Cities 2016 draws to a close, hear from Shefali Ranganathan about Seattle’s successful campaigns for sustainable transportation, and watch Seattle pass the crown to the Designing Cities 2017 Host City.
Shefali Ranganathan is the Executive Director at Transportation Choices Coalition (TCC), a Washington State based non-profit working to create more opportunities to take transit, walk or bike. TCC has led successful campaigns all across the state securing more than $25B for transit, biking and walking including the $930M Move Seattle transportation levy in 2015.
Shefali works on a range of transportation policy issues at the regional and local level coordinating a broad coalition of social justice, immigrant and refugee, public health, affordable housing, student, and senior groups working on transportation equity. She has served on several regional and local transportation advisory committees advocating for more transportation options including the Puget Sound Region Transportation Policy Board, the Move Seattle Oversight Committee, King County Metro’s Service Guidelines Taskforce, the Puget Sound Region Transportation Futures Taskforce, and the Seattle Citizens Transportation Advisory Committee. Prior to TCC, she was a policy expert in Washington DC working on federal transportation policy.
