Suzanne Loosen is a transportation planner with hands-on electric vehicle fleet and infrastructure experience. As BACC’s Project Manager, she is responsible for engaging municipal fleet adopters to maximize EV utilization and leading municipal fleet outreach for increased PEV adoption.
Before joining BACC, Suzanne was the Senior Transportation Planner at the Transportation Authority of Marin where she managed a number of transportation programs, including TAM’s Measure B electric vehicle infrastructure, fleet, and outreach programs. Suzanne sited charging stations, maximized grant funds, and assisted staff with all aspects of local government approval and installation, as part of the Bay Area EV Corridors program during early implementation of SB 375.
As the agency’s EV champion, Suzanne led the Electric Vehicle Advisory Working Group, working closely with representatives from local government staff, non-profit organizations, and community advocates to promote electric vehicle adoption in Marin County. She partnered with the Golden Gate Electric Vehicle Association to launch Marin National Plug In Day at the Marin Civic Center Farmers Market, now considered the model for EV ride-and-drive events. She also developed a Fleet Rebate Program with triple-match funding to local municipal agencies that replace conventional fleet vehicles with plug-in electric and hybrid electric vehicles.
Suzanne’s interest in transportation planning comes from a background in environmental consulting, including brownfields remediation and redevelopment planning. She has a BA in International Political Economy from the University of California, Berkeley.
