Join us for our Summer Feature Friday as we talk to board member Glenn Kurtz for the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition.

Glenn has been involved in Transportation Planning and Management for the past 20 years with a focus on Parking and Transportation Demand Management (TDM).

Glenn Kurtz is presently an Executive Vice President for Lanier Parking Solutions. Glenn is responsible for developing and marketing new services for Lanier that integrate parking and TDM. Glenn has built a long-term business model for Lanier and the parking industry that brings together parking and alternative transportation management services under one roof.  Mr. Kurtz played key roles in Lanier’s efforts to bring the Streetcar and Carsharing (Zipcar) to Atlanta.  Recently, Mr. Kurtz created LANIER consulting which focuses on parking and transportation planning for small downtowns and mixed use developments.  Glenn came to Lanier from the Perimeter Transportation Coalition (PTC), were he served as the Transportation Management Association's (TMA) first Executive Director.

During his three years as Executive Director of the PTC, Glenn developed alternative transportation programs for more than a hundred companies and properties that included discount transit sales, parking management strategies, shuttle, carpooling and van pooling and pedestrian programs.  Glenn spearheaded an effort that created two Community Improvement Districts in the area that continue to raise over $2 million a year for transportation infrastructure improvements.  While at the PTC, Glenn chaired one of the most successful TMA Summits.  The 2001 TMA Summit brought to Atlanta, Georgia over 400 transportation professionals from around the globe for three days to exchange ideas and learn from one another about TDM best practices.
