Emily Warren, Senior Director of Policy and Public Affairs, Lime
Emily is a shared mobility expert focused on leveraging new transportation technologies to reduce reliance on car ownership and build more sustainable cities. After starting her career in the traditional spheres of Capitol Hill and infrastructure finance, Emily made the leap to Silicon Valley as one of the earliest employees at Lyft, where she helped pioneer the ridesharing industry. The creator and longtime leader of Lyft’s Transportation Policy team, she spent the last half-decade working with cities to incorporate shared mobility and understand its impacts on travel behavior, infrastructure, public transit, and the environment. Emily now leads Policy and Public Affairs at Lime, the free-floating bike and e-scooter platform which has grown to over 100 cities in the last 18 months. She serves on the advisory council for the US DOT’s National Center for Sustainable Transportation and is a board member of UCLA’s Institute of Transportation studies. She holds an M.P.A. in Public Finance from the University of Pennsylvania and a B.A. in Political Science from the University of California, San Diego.
