Michael Kodransky is the US Director at ITDP – Institute for Transportation & Development Policy.
Michael leads all ITDP programmatic activities in the United States. In the next decade, he wants to break down the virtuous cycle of car use ingrained in US society. Current policies and infrastructure investments keep drivers captive to their circumstances while limiting world-class mobility for everyone. Michael has worked to improve economic and social conditions for people in cities around the world, partnering with multiple levels of government in dozens of cities and countries, local and international NGOs, research centers, foundations and development banks to accelerate the implementation of sustainable transport. He is known for strategic visioning and successfully bringing together programs that span diverse teams, stakeholders, geographic areas, and time zones.
He is also the creator of MOBILIZE—a transport leadership platform that convenes innovative doers and thinkers from across the globe—and until recently chaired the Sustainable Transport Award committee.
