Greg Lindsay‘s Biography

 

Greg Lindsay is a senior fellow of the New Cities Foundation, where he leads the Toyota-sponsored Connected Mobility Initiative.

His 2016 report Now Arriving: A Connected Mobility Roadmap for Public Transport, explored the challenges facing London, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Saó Paulo, and Manila, offering concrete near-, mid-, and long-term recommendations for cities and transport authorities to meet the opportunities posed by new services and the promise of autonomous vehicles. He is currently working with the foundation as the director of strategy for LA CoMotion — a five-day urban mobility festival set in the Arts District of Los Angeles.

In addition to his work with the New Cities Foundation, Lindsay is also a visiting scholar at New York University’s Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management, where he consulted on the centre’s 2014 report Reprogramming Mobility. He is currently the inaugural Urbanist-in-Residence at BMW MINI’s URBAN-X — a startup accelerator aimed at solving the toughest urban challenges through entrepreneurship.

Lindsay is a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations and a Young Leader of the World Cities Summit. His work with Studio Gang Architects on the future of suburbia was displayed at MoMA in 2012. He is also a senior fellow at the Work Futures Institute, exploring the intersection of the office with the city, the cloud, and Big Data. And his forthcoming book Engineering Serendipity has been made possible with the generous support of the Knight Foundation.
