YPT Atlanta is dedicated to providing opportunities to young professionals in transportation to foster professional development, fellowship, and to provide networking opportunities for young professionals in the transportation field in Atlanta, across the country, and around the world. We seek to build relationships across transportation industries, our allied professions and the region’s transportation students. We accomplish these goals primarily through our events, which we hope you will attend!

Our current board of directors represent a number of different industries and specialties, but we are always looking to expand!
