Hi all and Shalom from Tel Aviv,
I am Eyal Santo, please feel welcomed to call me Santo – it’s easier to remember. I am from Tel Aviv, Israel, the city “shamed” by Lior as car-centric, which is undergoing a major change these days – which both Lior and myself take part in. I work for the city of Tel Aviv DOT as director of bicycle and micro mobility pilot projects.
I am not an urban planner, but I deal with urbanism, sustainable urban mobility and bicycles for the past 12 years. I am not sure what areas of expertise do I identify with, but I am happy to share with you my passions:
* Tactical urbanism
* Urban cycle logistics
* Education – teach the next generations about alternatives and options when it comes to urban mobility, have them demand the options and get them
I am not sure yet how my unique perspective will enhance our collective understanding of designing for cycling, but I promise to share it as soon as I understand it.
I am happy to be in touch with anyone who wishes to share knowledge and collaborate for the better future of our cities and their people. Here’s where you can find me

And finally, I am inviting you to watch the talk I gave at Digital World Bike at https://youtu.be/NhAuj8QyyXk
