TransitCenter seeks a dynamic Program Analyst to join its staff of two in its New York office. The successful candidate will be an integral member of a growing organization and assist in conducting research, developing and implementing programs and projects related to improving public transit, as well as building organizational capacity. Learn more about the organization, its mission and staff at http://www.transitcenter.org.
As part of a small core team, the Program Analyst will research issues, develop opportunities, and execute projects for TransitCenter initiatives that promote sustainable urban mobility, with oversight from the Executive Director and Director of Research & Development. Some projects may be executed through the use of program consultants with specialized subject matter expertise.
The initial primary area of focus will be the field of transportation demand management, and in particular workplace-based programs that assist employers in shifting their employees to non-auto commuting practices. Though the workplace-based program is an initial focus, a successful candidate will have avid interest and versatility to work on other transit-related subjects as assigned and his/her portfolio will likely expand in the near future.
The Program Analyst will initially be responsible for developing options for TransitCenter in transportation demand management including the evaluation and promotion of workplace-based, employer-sponsored programs and the government programs that fund some of them. Once a useful summary of the existing state of the field is compiled, the Program Analyst will put forward options for potential roles TransitCenter could play, present them for consideration by senior management and the Board of Directors, and ultimately oversee implementation of programs.
The Program Analyst will also share responsibility for communicating TransitCenter’s initiatives through articles, blog posts, and social media.
TransitCenter is in effect a start-up so the Program Analyst will also be expected to play a hands-on role in operations and shoulder a portion of the organization’s administrative duties as assigned.
The position is based in New York City, out of the Center for Social Innovation in Chelsea. The salary range is $55-70,000 commensurate with experience, with a competitive benefits package.
The successful candidate will have:
Send a letter explaining your interest, a C.V., and one writing sample to email@example.com by 12:00 Noon on Wednesday, December 25, 2013.

Brilliant… and everything about Tesla Model S sounds better when the narrator sounds like Jason Statham (or is it Jason himself narrating it?). A bit of research showed that it is a part of NatGeo (UK)’s Megafactories Show, which has a ton of more such awesome things.. Check out the program’s website.
That’s a bit of surprise.. One would expect a city like Portland to top this list..Nonetheless, it is good to see the number of cities expanding their biking infrastructure.
San Francisco is the most bike-friendly city in the United States. With 5.6 miles of dedicated bike lanes, multiuse bike paths and signed bike routes per square mile (263 miles in total), the Californian metropolis offers the best biking infrastructure in the country.

There are many ways of showing dissent but here is one that should be a bit more endearing for the policemen, who are often tasked with maintaining order during such protests. The photo captures the policeman clearly in the moment, even with his visor down! Love stoned, perhaps? :) Why can’t more of this happen instead of tear gas canisters and stones!
Story behind the photo: An Agence France-Presse photographer Marco Bertorello snapped this image of a protestor during a demonstration over the construction of a high-speed rail in Susa, a tiny town in northwestern, Italy near the French-Swiss Alps. The rail line is expected to connect Milan and Paris, which critics say is too expensive and comes at great environmental cost.

We all know our “developed” societies have way too many cars and often choke up our streets and take up valuable space, resulting in terrible congestion and chronic bottle necks.. If a lot of people chose to leave behind their cars and instead opt for public transportation, it will be a perfect anti-dote for the chronic congestion that plagues our streets. So, how do you tell this story effectively? Here is one way to do it.. I call this the mother of all sustainable transportation images (courtesy of The Atlantic)
Of course, the biggest question is how much of this new tech will add to driver distraction, a hot topic that often pits tech/gadget makers against the regulators and policy-makers who fret about road safety.
