Come and learn more about the history and status of making San Francisco a safer place to walk and bike from panelists of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA). There is also an opportunity to ask the SFMTA anything. As it is nearly Valentine’s Day, the presentation will include some ideas for a romantic walk or ride – and maybe you’ll fall deeper in love with San Francisco along the way.

Meet our panelists:

Kimberly LeungKimberly Leung manages the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s Livable Streets subdivision, which oversees the city’s programs for bicycle and pedestrian capital improvements, traffic calming, bikeshare, and school crossing guards. She is a California-licensed Professional Engineer and Traffic Engineer with over a decade of experience working for the SFMTA. She earned her MS in Transportation Engineering and her BS in Civil and Environmental Engineering from UC Berkeley. Kimberly is an active leader of the transportation community and served as the 2023 Institute of Transportation Engineers Western District President. Fun fact about Kimberly is that she did not learn how to ride a bike until her mid-20s!

Mike SallaberryMike Sallaberry grew up in San Francisco and though he enjoyed riding bikes with his friends from an early age, he never imagined that it would lead to a career that involves making streets safer for cycling and walking! He’s been working as a transportation engineer for over 25 years now – mostly for the city of San Francisco – and loves the work. And he still loves to ride his bike – to explore, to be active, and to get around town. And while his love of San Francisco can be tested at times, exploring and experiencing the city by foot and on bike have only helped him love the City more.

Rachel DonovanThe moderator for this panel is Rachel Donovan. She is a licensed professional engineer with a long career in transportation planning, operations, project delivery, and bridge inspection with the State of California. Rachel was named Alameda County Bicycle Commuter of the Year in 2014 and was president of the Institute of Transportation Engineers, SF Bay Area Section, and the Mineta Transportation Institute Alumni Association. She and her husband Jeff are both members of our Rotary Club and avid walkers and bicyclists in San Francisco.
