Program 1

Transforming Transportation Planning

We have worked to steer state and local transportation agencies away from adding new and additional road capacity as a means of managing congestion.  In most cases, building more roads and highways worsens traffic and encourages sprawl development.  Investments in mass transit and transit-oriented development are key solutions to tackling congestion and pollution associated with gridlock traffic conditions.

Principal Officer

Ms. Veronica Vanterpool

BIO

Veronica joined TSTC in the summer of 2007 as a policy advocate to build support for New York City's congestion pricing plan. A year later, she was promoted to associate director. In June of 2012, she was appointed by the board of directors as executive director. Prior to joining the smart, dedicated staff at TSTC, Veronica worked at the Rainforest Alliance, an international conservation organization, and the New York City Department of Environmental Protection on its Waste Water Treatment Upgrade Program to protect New York City's watershed.

Coming from a strong academic and professional background in environmental science and policy, Veronica was drawn to the environmental root of TSTC's mission: reduce car dependency, and greenhouse gas emissions, by providing people with alternatives to driving. Her advocacy for sustainable transportation policy works towards communities that are designed to be walkable for people of all ages and abilities; public transportation that is affordable, reliable, and efficient; infrastructure that provides a safe streetscape for cyclists, pedestrians, and drivers; and government policies that support these goals on the local, state, and federal levels. Veronica was born and raised in the Bronx and holds an M.S. in Environmental Policy from the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark. She double majored in Environmental science and Political science at Binghamton University. Veronica serves on the Boards of the Bronx River Alliance and Vision Long Island.
