Cary Bearn

NACTO Title: Senior Program Manager, Biking
Cary Bearn

Cary is a Senior Program Manager leading NACTO’s bicycle and shared micromobility programs. Cary is leading the update to the Urban Bikeway Design Guide, a multi-year effort that includes releasing seven working papers used to expand the scope of the updated guide. Cary also convenes roundtables, facilitates Cities for Cycling and Shared Micromobility peer network calls, and organizes workshops and other trainings to document and share best practices that make North America’s streets safer, more equitable, and more sustainable through biking.

Before joining NACTO, Cary was the Chief Bicycle Officer for the City of Atlanta, where she led the City’s bike planning efforts, first from the Department of City Planning and then as part of the newly formed Atlanta Department of Transportation established in 2019. Cary managed the City’s shared micromobility programs and the implementation of the Mayor’s Action Plan for Safer Streets—a two year plan to triple the size of the city’s on-street protected bike network. Prior to her work in Atlanta, Cary worked as a Transportation Planner for Fehr & Peers in Los Angeles.

Cary has a BA in Biology from Williams College and a dual Masters degree from Georgia Institute of Technology in City and Regional Planning and Transportation Engineering.
