Breakfast Series Event/Trends in Multi-Modal Transportation
Investments in multi-modal transportation systems have become a growing national trend. Our June 22 Breakfast Series event explores two forms of multi-modal transportation: biking and car sharing. From increased bike infrastructure projects to the development of bike-friendly facilities and amenities, Indianapolis has continued to increase investments in improving the biking experience within the city. Meanwhile, car sharing services such as BlueIndy have continued to grow and expand into Indianapolis’ neighborhoods. First we will hear from Jamison Hutchins, DPW’s Bike and Pedestrian Coordinator, on recent bike infrastructure projects, trends, and future initiatives for the city. Then we’ll hear from Blake Richmond, Sales Executive and Ambassador Marketing Manager at BlueIndy, on lessons learned while implementing a car sharing system in Indianapolis, as well as future initiatives for the company.
Jamison is working to help transform Indianapolis into one of the most connected and bicycle friendly cities in the country. As the City’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator, Jamison oversees the City’s efforts to expand its multimodal infrastructure, to promote active transportation, to coordinate with local transportation advocacy groups and to organize public education and outreach efforts. Since Jamison joined the City in 2011, Indianapolis has been recognized as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists and the City has seen a 300% increase in its cycling modal share.
Jamison graduated with a Bachelor of Science in history and political science from the University of Montana in 2008. Jamison is currently a semester away from a Masters of Public Administration program at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.
Upon returning to Indianapolis in 2009, Jamison had the honor of serving in the first class of the community-based Public Allies program. He spent his time working with Health by Design where he focused on urban planning and transportation issues as they relate to public health. Jamison has also managed the advocacy and outreach efforts for Freewheelin’ Community Bikes and INDYCOG, two Indianapolis based bicycling advocacy organizations.
Blake Richmond moved to Indianapolis in 2009 to study Marketing at the University of Indianapolis. After graduating, he landed his first job with an innovative all-electric car sharing service called BlueIndy. Over the past two years with BlueIndy, Blake has been a Lead Brand Ambassador, Ambassador Marketing Manager, and Sales Executive.
Currently, Blake’s areas of focus with BlueIndy are new Member acquisition, ridership, stations construction, Ambassador daily operations, and assisting with the BlueLA car-sharing launch.
