TRANSPORTICA WELCOMES REMI MATEO
AS DEPUTY EDITOR
SACRAMENTO, Calif.– With its mission to provide sustainable transportation planning and promotion, TransportiCA is proud to announce the appointment of Remigio “Remi” Mateo as Deputy Editor. Mateo brings nearly two decades of transportation experience and scholarship in sustainable transportation, and has worked tirelessly on transportation access for the mobility-impaired.
Currently an advocate for the developmentally and physically disabled community at the Eastern Los Angeles Regional Center, Mateo educates clients on their American with Disabilities Act (ADA) rights, finding solutions towards their independence. Mateo's interest in transportation is especially focused on social equity and making sure all riders have access to quality transit.
In the position as Deputy Editor, Mateo will oversee TransportiCA’s analysis of sustainability behavioral elements and the Triple-Bottom Line: transportation that is socially desirable, culturally acceptable and psychologically nurturing.
Mateo is attending Presidio Graduate School (“PGS”) in San Francisco, for a Masters in Public Administration in Sustainable Management, and is also Chair of the PGS student association "Transport Presidio," dedicated to the education of sustainable transportation. Hobbies include hiking, Toastmasters, and especially reading – a favorite for graduate students. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Mateo has a Bachelors in Sociology from CSU Northridge, and is a 2016 Fellow for the World Energy Innovation Forum.
Founded in 2015, TransportiCA provides sustainable transportation education, planning and promotion through advocacy, media and consulting. More information can be found at www.transportica.info, via email at info[at]transportica.info, or by tweeting us @transportica.
