Shreya Gadepalli leads the India & South Asia Programme of the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP), a global non-profit that works worldwide to design and implement high quality transport systems and policy solutions that make our cities more sustainable, equitable, and safe.
Her work with ITDP since the late 90s has established her as one of the leading experts in the region. She has guided dozens of cities in planning, design, and implementation of high-quality public transport systems and complete streets for all. Planning of inclusive transit-oriented cities and regulation of personal motor vehicle use are her other areas of expertise.
Today, she leads a young and dynamic team to achieve tangible transformation at scale in cities across the region — inspiring urban leaders to take action, providing in-depth technical support in creating best practices, helping embed these best practices into policies and standards, and expanding capacity of public officials and practitioners to plan, design, and implement sustainable and equitable urban transport initiatives at scale.
