YPT Boston Distinguished Speaker - Go Boston 2030

Join YPT Boston as we welcome Boston's Chief of Streets Chris Osgood, Boston Transportation Department (BTD) Commissioner Gina Fiandanca, and BTD's Director of Planning Vineet Gupta. All three were instrumental in the development and execution of Go Boston 2030.

Go Boston 2030 is a bold initiative to improve Boston's transportation future for the next 5, 10, and 15 years. The initiative sets in place plans and policies that will seek to improve transit, biking, and pedestrian realms while reducing single-occupancy-vehicle usage and preparing the City's infrastructure for climate change. Relying on substantial community input, the initiative was developed over two years and strives to enhance equity, climate responsiveness, and economic opportunity in the City. This event is eligible for 1.0 CM credits for AICP certified planners.

About the Speakers:

Chris Osgood is Boston's Chief of the Streets, Transportation & Sanitation. In 2010 Chris co-founded the Mayor's Office of New Urban Mechanics, "a nationally replicated civic innovation group that experiments with new ways of using data, design and technology to improve the constituent experience." Chris has worked for the City since 2006, which has included roles as a Mayoral Policy Advisor.

Gina Fiandanca is the Commissioner of the Boston Transportation Department. Gina has worked at BTD since 1990, including as Parking Clerk from 2006-2014. Gina has worked on innovative policies and plans during her tenure at BTD. For example, she worked closely with the Mayor's Office of New Urban Mechanics to launch the ParkBoston app, which allowed users to pay for parking through smartphones.

Vineet Gupta is the Director of Planning at the Boston Transportation Department. Vineet has served in this role since 1998 and during this time worked to establish Boston's Complete Streets program, launched the City's innovative Mobility microHUBs program, and developed the City's Green Links program. Additionally, he has led programs that have designed "Boston’s first transit priority bus line; formalize pollution-reducing parking policies; help jump-start Boston’s bicycle program; and establish an electric vehicle charging program."
