Executive Director
Paul Steely White is Executive Director of Transportation
Alternatives, New York City’s leading advocates for bicycling, walking
and public transportation.

Before joining Transportation Alternatives in April 2004, he served as
Africa Regional Director for the Institute for Transportation and
Development Policy, a non-profit group based in New York City. In
2011, Mr. White was selected to receive the Rockefeller Foundation's
Jane Jacobs Medal, which recognizes those whose creative uses of the
urban environment build a more diverse, dynamic, and equitable city.
In 2015, Paul was recognized by the New York Academy of
Medicine for his work to make New York City streets safer and healthier.

He relishes his weekends, largely spent frolicking on the Brooklyn
waterfront with his wife Zoe, eight-year-old daughter Anna Jane and his twins, Ivy and Ray.
