Greetings Price Tags reader—
My name is Alexandra Doran (I’ll answer to Alex!), currently working in the region as a transportation planning consultant. I’m originally from Halifax, and came to Vancouver in 2014 with stops in Kelowna and Montreal.
I have a Master’s in urban planning with a concentration in transportation, and my areas of interest — which I look forward to sharing and discussing with you — include planning for equity, particularly as it relates to transport and housing, active transport, and the many facets of environmental justice. Dovetailing off some of Price Tags recent discussions, my first series of posts will explore the rise of e/micro mobility.
I’m always eager to hear and chat about emerging policies, projects and plans – both ‘good’ and ‘bad’ – from here and elsewhere, so please don’t hesitate to suggest particular topics for me to cover.
Thanks for following along!
