A San Francisco transportation official was nominated today to run Los Angeles’ Department of Transportation.

Seleta Reynolds, who leads three teams as part of the Livable Streets program in San Francisco, “is the ideal field marshal in our war against traffic,” Mayor Eric Garcetti said, adding that she will work to improve roads, transit and amenities for bicyclists and pedestrians.

“She is also a big believer in our Great Streets Initiative and has committed to applying her passion and expertise to revitalizing key community corridors across our city to improve neighborhood gathering places and generate economic activity,” he said.

Garcetti recently announced the first 15 streets around the city that he plans to transform into community gathering places.

Reynolds’ nomination as general manager of the DOT is subject to the City Council’s approval.

“Los Angeles is a world-class city that deserves excellent transportation choices,” Reynolds said. “I’m excited to partner with the agencies and policy-makers who deliver great projects on the streets.”

Reynolds’ work with San Francisco’s livable streets program includes a pilot bike-sharing system and efforts to eliminate traffic deaths.

She has worked for more than 16 years on transportation projects around the country.

“Seleta is the right person at the right time,” said Janette Sadik-Khan, a former New York City transportation commissioner who advised the mayor on his search for a transportation director.

“L.A.’s streets are its most valuable resource and Mayor Garcetti’s selection is a key step toward making them great streets for walking, biking, living and business,” she said.
