TransportationCamp Virtual 2020

Hosted by the TransportationCamp PHL team from the City of Brotherly Love, we are pleased to launch TransportationCamp Virtual as the TCPHL response to COVID-19.

Whether you work in the industry or simply have an interest, we welcome you to join us online for a day filled with ideas at the intersection of transportation, technology, and urbanism. As always, the participant-driven TransportationCamp conference series follows the “unconference” format, lending itself to a more pertinent, thought-provoking, and active event.

Organized by passionate Philadelphians in conjunction with the Philadelphia chapters of Young Professionals in Transportation (YPT) and Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS), and Drexel University’s Lindy Institute for Urban Innovation, we look forward to seeing you… so clean off that webcam!

This will be a free event, but we’re asking participants to register in advance, especially given the uncharted waters of a virtual unconference. Logistics will be updated on an ongoing basis, so register for the event and subscribe to email updates to ensure you get the latest.

First Time at a TransportationCamp?

  • How To TransportationCamp: The folks at MobilityLab have taken the time to put together a TransportationCamp 101 guide that explains all aspects of the event.

  • Participation Encouraged: Sessions are formed as the day goes on, so be sure to come with topics for discussion. If you have an idea, feel free to share and add your thoughts.

  • Rule of Two Clicks: Never hesitate to leave a session if you suddenly find it’s not for you, or if there’s another session that you want to check out, too!

  • Dress Code: TransportationCamp is a very casual event. Although you might be inclined to dress up for a conference, your best attire is your coolest transportation tee shirt!

Organizing Committee

TransportationCamp Philadelphia is being organized thanks to a collaborative effort between YPT, WTS, and Drexel Lindy Institute. Passionate about transportation and bringing the conference to Philadelphia, the conference’s five co-chairs span a diverse array of subsets in the industry with professional experience in both public and private transportation operations, transportation planning, and logistics consulting. For additional breadth, the conference has a larger working group whose collective knowledge and expertise spans all facets of the industry and includes all levels of transportation involvement (ranging from career professionals to engaged hobbyists).

The event is finished.
