Urban planning/design/engineering experience is a plus.

The second position for a Bicycle Friendly America Program Specialist will be the primary contact for communities, business, universities and states looking to be great places for bicycling. The program specialist provides information on how these places can improve conditions for bicyclists in the areas of engineering, education, encouragement, enforcement, and evaluation/planning and researches the latest programs and projects available within these categories.
