Andrew Miller is Associate Director, Mobility at Sidewalk Labs. His background is in policy and planning for mobility networks, especially public transit. As a Strategic Leader with the City of Mississauga, he led the delivery of Dundas Connects, a master plan for rapid transit, intensified urban development, and an improved public realm for a key City corridor. Previously, Andrew worked for the Ontario Public Service in various positions at the Ministries of Infrastructure, Finance, and Transportation, most recently as head of the Municipal Transit Policy Office.
At Sidewalk Labs, Andrew works to deliver all aspects of the firm’s mobility vision for Quayside, which is to craft a system that provides access and convenience, while minimizing impact on public realm and climate. That system will include innovative changes to the delivery of public transit and active transportation, and designing and delivering streets that take full advantage of autonomous-vehicle technology.
Andrew holds a BA from McGill University, an MA from Yale University, and a PhD from Johns Hopkins University. CBC Radio referred to him as a leading thinker on the subject of municipal finance reform. He’s also fun at parties.
