Lindiwe Rennert sees physical mobility as a catalyst for social mobility.

Lindiwe is interested in all things motion, with a particular emphasis on transit corridor design, geo-spatial data visualization, and the intersection of mobility systems with race and gender equity. She aims to help policy influencers make innovative, data-driven decisions that shape a more inclusive, mobile future.

Lindiwe’s prior work includes crowdsourced jitney route mapping in Nairobi, adaptive transit network design in Medellin, and crafting implementation strategy for a Metro Cable line connecting surrounding barrios to central Caracas. Domestically, her work has focused on using mobility systems to drive equitable urban placemaking. Before joining Nelson\Nygaard, Lindiwe specialized in transit-oriented development at MassInc, a Massachusetts-based public policy think tank, where she helped leverage transit to generate inclusive economic growth and revitalization within post-industrial downtowns.
