The San Francisco Bay Area boasts an exciting and diverse community, whatever your passion, just like our local chapter of YPT. Our members and friends include a huge variety of transportation professionals, advocates, entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts who share a common purpose: working toward safe, efficient, and sustainable transportation in the Bay Area.
YPT’s core mission is to ensure that this community is supported with career guidance, fellowship, and networking opportunities. Our events and programs are numerous, varied, always engaging, and truly benefit from the active participation of our members and friends. Don’t be shy! Become a member today, sponsor our programs, and join us at one of our exciting events.
As the 2014-2015 chair, I feel incredibly lucky to be joined on the YPT Board by a smart, capable, and passionate group of transportation professionals. We are working together to offer a stellar lineup of events including great opportunities to meet your industry peerss and discussions touching on almost every transportation issue in the Bay Area. This year, we’ll also be taking a special look at what we can do as a board and a community to further diversity and opportunity for underrepresented and disadvantaged groups; if you have thoughts and ideas on how we can create a more equitable transportation space, please get in touch.
The furious pace of our events and innovative programs can only be sustained with your active participation and with membership and sponsorship support. If you’re not already a member, join us! If you’re already one, let us know how we can make things better. Thanks for your interest in YPT.
