Let's bring back some of the progressive thinking that inspired the parks and parkways illustrated in this film. Let's tear down the expressways built through Buffalo's parks and build a sustainable transport system linked to community based economic development. That's the future, Buffalo could lead the way.

Introduction

Andrew Nash is a transport and urban planner specialised in project management and development. He helps clients at all stages of the project process from proposal development/writing to publishing results in technical journals. His particular specialties include public transport planning, railway planning, city planning, sustainable transport and information technology.

Nash’s current project GreenCityStreets.com uses an online game, social networking and a best practices library (wiki) to help improve citizen involvement in public transport planning. The project was awarded most innovative project in the Vienna’s Die Stadt 2020 Program and awarded Honourable Mention in the US TRB’s Communicating with John and Jane Q. Public Contest (2013). He is currently extending the application to include a bicycle element called Grr-Grr-Bike.

Nash’s clients include WienerLinien, ETH Zurich IVT, European Union DG-MOVE, Austrian Federal Ministry of Transportation (BMVIT), Rail Technology Cluster Austria, TINA Vienna, Austria Tech, Thales Austria.

Between 2001 and 2007 Nash was a researcher at the ETH Zurich’s Institute for Transport Planning and Systems (IVT). He focused on public transport efficiency, railway planning and operations, communications and public involvement, and the relationship of transport policy to urban development.

In 2000 and 2001 Nash served as executive director of the San Francisco County Transportation Authority, where he directed the city’s long-range transportation planning and financing programs. Previously he worked as a project manager for the Caltrain commuter rail system, the Santa Clara County Congestion Management Agency, and for several consulting firms.

Nash is a registered professional civil engineer. He is a member of the US Transportation Research Board’s Public Involvement Committee, Transport Issues in Large Cities Committee and Commuter Rail Committee.

Nash obtained his Master of Engineering and Master of City Planning degrees from the University of California, Berkeley, where he specialised in transportation policy. He also received a Master of Science in civil engineering from Northeastern University, where he specialised in public transport operations. He received his Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Before moving to Europe, Nash was a leader in several San Francisco Bay Area organisations including Greenbelt Alliance and the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association (SPUR). In 1990, Nash helped draft a citizen’s initiative requiring long-range waterfront planning and helped lead the successful campaign. Nash was honoured by the San Francisco Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS) as Member of the Year in 1989. He also received over 30,000 votes in an unsuccessful run for election to the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) District Board of Directors in 1992.
