Pa.’s Penn State Transportation Services announced the hiring of Cecily Zhu as its first alternative transportation coordinator. Zhu comes to Penn State from Pittsburgh, where she most recently worked as a transportation policy and planning fellow for the Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group.

A graduate of State University of New York's College of Environmental Science and Forestry with a degree in environmental studies, Zhu developed and promoted alternative transportation programs and initiatives for Highmark, including the creation of new bicycle parking facilities at offices in Pittsburgh and Charleston, W.V. She has also worked for the city of Syracuse’s Bureau of Planning and Sustainability and the Grand Tetons National Park in Wyoming.

“The hiring of our first alternative transportation coordinator is a major addition to the Transportation Services team that will better position us to meet both the university’s sustainability goals and transportation needs,” said Rob DeMayo, director, transportation services. “Cecily’s passion for alternative transportation, combined with her background in transportation planning and sustainability, make her the ideal candidate to continue our efforts to provide a variety of commuting and on-campus transportation programs to the Penn State community.”
