ThisTuesday, a speaker on the forefront of the transportation discussion is coming to Tampa.
On tour for her new book, New York City's former Commissioner of Transportation under Mayor Mike Bloomberg, Janette Sadik-Khan will share her expertise in Tampa this week.
Tickets to see Sadik-Khan speak at Tampa Theatre at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 7 are on sale now for $35; admission includes a copy of Sadik-Khan's book, "Street Fight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution."
Attendees are invited to come as early 5 p.m. to network prior to the event. After the show, a post-discussion signing line will form for any who wish to have their books personalized.
Though many approved of the changes brought forth by Sadik-Khan, her tenure was still riddled with media controversies and a lawsuit regarding her policies on bike lanes, plazas and bike share programs.
Currently, she chairs the National Association of Transportation Officials/Global Designing Cities Initiative and works with mayors around the U.S. as part Bloomberg Associates to help innovate transportation around the country.
