Why Attend?

Transportation is a major metropolitan issue, with direct impacts on economic strength, environmental sustainability, and social equity.  Recent advances in technology (“web 2.0”, mobile computing, open source software, open data and APIs, and spatial analysis) present an opportunity to improve mobility more immediately and at a lower cost than has ever been possible in the past.

TransportationCamp raises awareness of this opportunity and builds  connections between disparate innovators in public administration, transportation operations, information design, and software engineering.

What’s an “unconference?”

TransportationCamp brings together thinkers and doers in the fields of transportation and technology for learning, debating, connecting, and creating.

This is not a traditional conference: in addition to talks and presentations from big names in transportation and technology, TransportationCamp provides an opportunity for every attendee to be a participant in shaping and leading the event.  Be prepared to get involved, meet people, and get busy.  Highly recommended pre-event reading:   “How a TransportationCamp Works:  The Essential Guide.”

Major themes of discussion include: open data — best practices and technical challenges, ways to lower the cost of technology for transportation agencies, and creative new approaches to addressing transportation issues.

Session topics and activities are suggested by attendees and organizers leading up to the event.  See past topic suggestions for TransportationCamp East and West here.
