This episode of Raising Your Antenna features David Kim, former U.S. Department of Transportation Deputy Administrator under President Obama and California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA) Secretary under Gov. Newsom, to discuss the ways in which industry can help unlock billions of dollars in local transportation investments and help build a more equitable mobility system.
Secretary Kim is a globally recognized leader in transportation policy. As CalSTA Secretary, Kim focused on advancing safe, accessible, low-carbon multimodal transportation systems. His agency developed the state’s Climate Action Plan for Transportation Infrastructure, an aggressive framework to overhaul transportation planning and project selection by aligning transportation investments with climate, health and equity goals. As Deputy Administrator of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Kim drove key initiatives to improve safety, mobility and encourage innovation for our Nation’s highways, bridges and tunnels.
Now as Senior Vice President and Principal at WSP, Secretary Kim focuses on collaborating with senior transportation executives in the public and private sector to support transportation projects under the Inflation Reduction Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. He also guides the delivery of transportation capital projects, including strategic planning and policy, environmental process, funding and finance, and capital delivery.

- The future of electric vehicles and how the federal government can support a national charging system
