Blanka Bracic’s goal is to increase people’s quality of life by offering everyday urban transportation options that are easy, safe, normal, healthy and fun. A recent achievement for Bracic was leading the three-year planning of Calgary’s 5.5km downtown cycle track pilot network through political approvals that ended in 2014. She created the monitoring and evaluation program for the pilot project, which was made permanent in December 2016. After ten years of developing walking and cycling policy, projects and programs as a transportation engineer at The City of Calgary, Canada, Bracic completed a two-year Master of Science urban planning degree in Stockholm and Amsterdam in 2017. She is now the Acting Manager of the Liveable Streets Division at the City of Calgary. This group is the creator and steward of municipal policies on walking, cycling and complete streets.
