Having served as the former director of transportation for both Washington D.C. and Chicago, as well as in an executive role at ZipCar, Gabe Klein has been responsible for bringing transportation innovation to the masses. His new book, Start-Up City, seeks to help bridge the public-private divide and forge better cities with more nimble, consumer-oriented bureaucracies. Join him for a discussion about how we can inspire a startup-like pace in the public sector, leverage its immense resources and create functional, lasting change. Co-presented by Island Press and co-sponsored by APA Northern California, ULI San Francisco, the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and TransForm.
