Season 1 Episode 18 - Adonia Lugo and Romel Pasqual built CicLAvia, an event that catalyzes vibrant public spaces, active transportation, and good health through car-free street events. The event has helped over 1.6 million people access their streets in a different way and made them open to everyone. What can our streets look like in The City of Tomorrow?
Season 1 Episode 17 - From Sarah Kaufman’s start helping to make NYC transit data more accessible to her groundbreaking research on women’s challenges in mobility, she ensures that diversity, openness, and courage are critical elements in how we’ll build the future.
Season 1 Episode 16 - Rob Puentes of the Eno Center for Transportation recognizes that relying on the federal government to provide solutions for transportation problems is a major barrier to overcoming them. Instead, we need to think about how we frame the problems and the solutions.
Mobility is an essential component to the vibrant, equitable, and sustainable cities of our future. To build this future, we need to do more than invest in technology. We need to invest in the people who will make the hard decisions around transportation, land use, housing, economic development, and other aspects of urban life.
Josh Cohen, National Policy Director at TransLoc, started that conversation by building relationships with and sharing ideas from today’s leaders who are imagining and implementing change. He will profile leaders who are doing the heavy lifting to make our communities better and inspire new ones to supplement them. Together, we’ll build The Movement with the goal of sparking tangible change in our communities.

For seven years, Josh helped TransLoc grow from 5 customers to 120 customers as TransLoc's Director of Business Development. Prior to TransLoc, Josh was CEO of DomoLife, a real-estate services business, and VP of Turnkey Sports, a sports business consultancy. When not chasing his three kids around the Bull City, North Carolina, Josh enjoys roasting his own coffee and smoking his own barbeque.
