SEATTLE, Wednesday, July 2, 2014 - Seattle Mayor Ed Murray this morning named Scott Kubly as the new head of the Seattle Department of Transportation.
Kubly is a recent transplant to Seattle after an impressive stint as Deputy Commissioner of the Chicago DOT, where he was integral to creating 50 miles of protected bike lanes and helped implement Chicago’s Divvy bike share.
Prior to Chicago, Kubly worked at the Washington, D.C. DOT Progressive Transportation Services Administration, where he overssaw bike share and other forward-looking transit projects.
“Mr. Kubly has proven himself time and again to be an ally of bicycling, walking and transit,” said Elizabeth Kiker, Executive Director of the Cascade Bicycle Club. “With the implementation of the Bicycle Master Plan and Pronto! Emerald City Cycle Share on the horizon, we’re glad to have such an experienced, capable public servant leading the way.”
Cascade Bicycle Club welcomes Director Kubly and is excited to continue working with SDOT to make Seattle safer and more convenient for bicyclists.
