City Hires New Sustainable Transportation Planner

Following the departure of Emily Erickson, the city of Saint Paul hired a new Sustainable Transportation Planner. His name is Reuben Collins and he is an engineer, cyclist, parent, homeowner and blogger. You can read his blog posts on and on his own blog at

His primary job will be to complete the city's comprehensive bicycle plan but he'll be involved in other planning and implementation projects including (we hope) reviving the city's bike rack cost-share program.
