I’m Anthony Foxx, U.S. Secretary of Transportation. AMA.
Hello, everyone! I’m Anthony Foxx, U.S Secretary of Transportation. Before I head to Las Vegas for CES, I’ll be answering your questions here at Reddit headquarters in San Francisco. Since I joined DOT in 2013, we’ve accomplished some pretty amazing things and kept our eye on the future. We launched a national conversation about the critical challenges facing our country over the next 30 years with the Beyond Traffic report. We’re helping to build America’s first smart city - Columbus, Ohio, the winner of our Smart City Challenge. In September, we issued the world’s first national policy for automated vehicles and our Transportation Toolkit will change how Americans participate in the transportation planning process in their communities.
A couple of fun facts:
1) I’m a huge Yankees fan despite my Southern roots.
2) This Summer, I interviewed my good friend Wynton Marsalis on how the sounds of transportation have inspired his music. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/3zQ7g1KcTVw.
