ITDP Founder Michael Replogle Appointed New York City Department of Transportation Deputy Commissioner for Policy


The ITDP board and staff offer our congratulations to longtime board member, founder, and managing director for global policy Michael Replogle as he prepares for his new role at the NYCDOT. We are confident that he will serve NYC with the same dedication and expertise that we have all witnessed, and that he will remain a close friend and adviser to ITDP.

Michael’s vision and passion created ITDP, and he has helped lead the organization to grow and develop. He served as ITDP’s board president from its founding in 1985 until 1992 and from 1998 to 2009. After joining ITDP’s staff in 2009, he developed our global policy program and was an essential part of achieving a landmark funding commitment from the eight largest multilateral development banks at Rio + 20 in 2012: $175 billion for more sustainable transport funding over ten years. Since then, he has been actively working to fulfill that commitment as an official observer of the MDB Working Group on Sustainable Transport, as well as mainstreaming transportation into the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

At NYCDOT, Michael will be supporting Commissioner Polly Trottenberg by advancing Mayor de Blasio’s Vision Zero traffic safety initiative, implementing PlaNYC, improving bus services with SBS and BRT, and a new $250 million Great Streets program, among other projects.

“I am delighted to have been a colleague and partner with ITDP over these many years as we have advanced the role and scope of sustainable transportation worldwide, and I look forward to future cooperation,” says Michael. “ITDP has an outstanding team in place with a senior leadership team that has been with the organization for over a decade. I have great confidence in the organization to continue its vital work worldwide. This was simply too amazing an opportunity to miss, and I am honored to work with Commissioner Trottenberg to enact Mayor de Blasio’s vision for safe, equitable, and sustainable transportation.”

Michael plans to remain on ITDP’s board of directors, unless the NYC Conflicts of Interest Board decides otherwise. He will remain at ITDP until officially joining NYCDOT in June. We continue to celebrate his inspiring contribution to ITDP’s successes over 30 years, and to the mission of sustainable and equitable transport for all.
