FORA.tv Speaker - Timothy Papandreou
Timothy Papandreou serves as the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency's assistant deputy director of transportation planning and development, focusing on steering the city toward a more sustainable and integrated transportation model that reduces reliance on the private automobile by making alternatives such as walking, biking, car-sharing and taking a taxi more convenient and reliable.
An urban planner by training with a focus on transportation, Papandreou last worked in Los Angeles. The native Australian started working for San Francisco on Jan. 26, which, he pointed out, happens to be Australia Day, the equivalent of the Fourth of July in the United States. He lives in the city's Hayes Valley neighborhood, walks to work and rides his bike around town. He has never owned a car.
