Seleta Reynolds is the General Manager for the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, as well as the president of the National Association for City Transportation Officials in North America. She recently visited Berlin to discuss mobility with officials from Brussels, Paris, Beijing, and Moscow at an event hosted by Regine Günther, Berlin’s Senator for Environment, Transport and Climate Protection.

While its international reputation is that of a car city, Reynolds notes how L.A.’s transportation systems have evolved in the past 10 years, with cycling growing in popularity, thanks to the building of a protected bike network influenced by European and East Coast cities.
