Professional Bio

As Manager of Curbside Management for the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) since 2005, Mike Estey implements data-driven, outcome-based parking, access, and mobility solutions with an emphasis on customer service and technological innovation. Seattle’s program has been recognized by its peers as one of the nation’s most innovative. Estey manages a team of 25 strategic advisors, transportation planners, engineers, and field technicians and a $12 million annual budget. Seattle’s 1,550 multi-space pay stations control 12,000 on-street spaces. Estey’s portfolio also includes finding solutions to address the growing demand for on-street curb space by emerging users such as ride-hail providers, car-share, employer shuttles, food trucks, and the increasingly complex web of urban goods delivery. Prior to SDOT, Estey was a strategic advisor in the Seattle mayor’s office, and before that, a legislative assistant in Washington, D.C. In 2019, he received the IPMI James M. Hunnicutt, CAPP, Parking Professional of the Year Award for contributions to the industry.
