Victoria Eisen has 30 years’ experience managing projects and planning processes that reduce the San Francisco Bay Area’s dependency on the automobile.
Before co-founding Eisen|Letunic, Victoria was employed by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG). Through these experiences, Victoria became a skilled facilitator with an insider’s understanding of public agency processes and needs, which has been invaluable in her work facilitating agency and public stakeholders to develop sound policy and popular on-the-ground facilities.
With Eisen|Letunic, she has overseen the development of the BART, Caltrain and Alameda Countywide Bicycle Plans and, for MTC, the Regional Bicycle Plan, as well as the three volumes of the BART Bicycle Program Capital Plan and California’s first countywide pedestrian plan (in Alameda County). Currently, she is managing BART’s first planning effort to work collaboratively with local jurisdictions to improve station access and a streetscape master plan in Orinda, meant to unite the two sides of the downtown.
Victoria was raised in San Francisco and formerly chaired the Berkeley Planning Commission, Berkeley Transportation Commission and the Transportation Subcommittee of Berkeley’s Downtown Area Plan Advisory Committee. She holds master’s degrees in city planning and transportation engineering, both from UC Berkeley.
