Nina Rizzo worked at TransForm from 2016 to 2021, during which time she managed the GreenTRIP Certifications program, which supports more transit-oriented homes with less driving. She also led TransForm’s community engagement work on transportation issues with BART's property development at Lake Merritt and El Cerrito Plaza stations, and supports city and regional policy work, and conducts trainings on the GreenTRIP Connect tool. Nina has multi-sector experience working on projects and research related to transportation, housing and clean energy. Her enthusiasm for transportation issues began when the California Governor's Office of Planning and Research asked her to study the potential impacts of autonomous vehicles on land use, climate change, and social equity.
Nina appreciates the travel choices to get around in the Bay Area so that driving isn't the only option. She received a Master's in Public Policy from Mills College and a B.A. from UC Berkeley. In her spare time, she likes to go hiking and dancing.
