Recently appointed by the city of San Diego to lead its 13-member Mobility Board, San Diego County Bicycle Coalition’s Andy Hanshaw discussed his role, the status of the region’s transportation network and progress being made in weaning people from their solo vehicles while achieving ambitious climate action plan (CAP) goals in a Q&A with Beach & Bay Press.

BBP: How does the newly created Mobility Board differ from its predecessor, the Bicycle Advisory Board?

Hanshaw: It’s broader in representation and more than just bicycling. It includes transit advocates and community members. There’s a disability rights advocate. It’s a broader range with members from every district, as well as four members appointed by the mayor. It looks at everyone from pedestrians to bicyclists, while looking at everything from parking issues to transit connections.

BBP: What exactly is your role on the Mobility Board?

Hanshaw: It’s guiding our agendas. There really are experts all around the table. Really, the goal is to help the city streamline the process of implementing mobility options. We want to be a body that holds the city to getting where they need to go.

BBP: What is the Mobility Board’s purpose?

Hanshaw: To serve as an advisory board for policy relating to the city’s transportation network, analyzing things in a holistic way to ensure people have safe and easy access and choice of transportation modes as they move around the city. Its goal is also to help the city meet its climate action plan.

(The city’s CAP calls for eliminating half of all greenhouse gas emissions and for all electricity used in the city to be from renewable sources by 2035.)

BBP: What role will the Mobility Board have in the new Mobility Action Plan the city is working on?

Hanshaw: This Mobility Board will have input on the draft outline of that plan, which the city is going to come back to us with in August. The plan is how the city sets itself up in the Transportation Department with the staff, resources and the plan to implement measures to achieve the CAP. We look forward to being a voice for that plan.

BBP: How does mobility fit into the larger scheme of transportation within the region? 

Hanshaw: Looking at the bigger picture, the city has to comply with state law requiring greenhouse gases to be reduced. The track we were on, the previous plan, was not reaching that goal. We need to take a good step back to really evaluate how we create a world-class transit network. I’ve been really pleased to hear the city is committed to creating a bike lane network and a regional bike plan. It’s about having safe choices. We have to think big.

BBP: What needs to be done to make biking safer and encourage more people to go that route? 

Hanshaw: In simplest terms, it’s really providing choices for people to move around your region, besides just driving [cars]. It’s really about creating safe, connected networks, which relates to transit for bicycling. It’s building out, as soon as we can, a regional bike network. 

BBP: What else needs to be done to improve the city’s transportation system?

Hanshaw: We have to think quickly because climate change is real. We need to take the steps necessary to comply with state and local greenhouse gas reductions. The bike master plan needs to be one of the guiding documents of the Mobility Action Plan.

Vision Zero also needs to be a part of this new Mobility Action Plan.

(Vision Zero is a strategy to eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries, while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all.)

BBP: Is there anything else that can be done to wean people from their cars?

Hanshaw: We need to create behavior change to help people get out of cars, like creating shuttles and a bike network. We need to give people safe mobility choices. You put a safe choice out there, and people will use it. It’s not there yet.

It's awesome and amazing. My name is Tony Orela am from the United States Getting my husband back is what i least expected and could never imagine. I and my husband have been married for five years and we have been living happily but all of a sudden he changed completely and turned away from me but i never knew what was going on, and i tried to ask him but he refused to tell me what the problem is, and as time went on he sought for a divorce. I was so worried and confused. During my search for a way out, a friend of mine who had similar problem told me about a great spell caster called Dr Uzoya who helped her with her situation. I never use to believe in spell casting in my entire life because i never thought it will work but i tried to give this man a chance and to my greatest surprise Dr Uzoya got me a positive result and he was able to get my husband back to me. After the spell caster did his work, i discovered that my husband fell so much in love with me unlike before. This spell casting isn't brain washing but he opened up his eyes to see how much i love and needed him. Now i am a happy woman again and I don't know how am going to thank Dr Uzoya so i am using this opportunity to tell anyone having similar problem to visit him on [email protected] his telephone number is  1(301)909-8775

I am John Danilla from UK( northern ireland), i want to share a

testimony on how a powerful spell caster cured my HIV disease, i was

diagnosed of this disease, in the year 2009, last week i saw a testimony on

Dr.Akioya on how he cured an HIV patient, so i contacted him through phone

and he asked me to email him, which idid, so he told me that all my

problems is over and then he decided to do an healing spell spell for me so

after he finished it, he told me to wait for just 24 hours and then i

should go for a test, so i really did as he had said, so my greatest

surprised when i went to the hospital to go for an HIV test, the Medical

doctor diagnosed that, i am now HIV negetative at first i was amazed and

now i have come to realise that this spell caster Dr. Akioya is a very

powerful one and a real spell caster. So viewers of this should please join

me in my celebration for i am the happiest man on earth today and if you

want to contact him, you can do this via his email

[email protected] or call him or whatsapp him
