Transit Manager Bonanza Event – YPT SF Bay 2013 Kickoff Event

Happy 2013, YPT! Before we all get to party at TRB, the SF Bay Chapter is super excited to present our first major event of the year. We have a full deck of esteemed guests from some of the largest transit providers in the region who will share thoughts, funny stories, and whatever else we can get them to spill this coming Wednesday at Infusion Lounge, 124 Ellis Street at Powell Muni/BART, 6:00pm-9:00pm. These transportation celebrities are:

  • Ed Reiskin, SFMTA Director
  • Michael Scanlon, General Manager and CEO of San Mateo Country Transit District
  • Grace Crunican, General Manager of BART, and 
  • Michael Gougherty, Planner/Analyst at Water Emergency Transportation Authority

Our guests are excited to discuss your questions. Feel free to submit your questions for our featured guests on our facebook page or tweet to us!

Here are some of my questions, just to get you started:

  • What does it mean to manage siloed agencies when Bay Area travel patterns are regional? What are 3 easy things we could do to improve regional transit connectivity?
  • What’s your favorite transportation project underway that’s not in your jurisdiction?
  • How trans-curious were you before you got your job? Please answer on a Kinsey scale.
  • Don’t you think it would be awesome if we had a funicular from Twin Peaks to the Bay View? Why don’t we have one of those? I would totally ride it.

Space is limited and as spots get filled, current YPT members will get priority. RSVP at our EventBrite: http://yptsfbayanniversary.eventbrite.com/

Choo choo. #modeltrain display at Norfolk Southern. #trains #transportation #model #hobbies YPT Austin was instrumental in supporting the Greenroads Boot Camp hosted by CTRMA in Austin.  Increase your sustainability street cred, and learn more about Greenroads International, one of our Silver Sponsors! #transportation #sustainability #green #transit #engineering #thankful The #Alaska #Railroad’s main line stretches 470 miles from Seward to #Fairbanks, #connecting communities all along Southcentral and Interior Alaska. The main line was completed in 1923 after 9 years of construction; President Warren G. Harding traveled to Alaska for the occasion and personally drove in the Golden Spike to finish the job. In 1943, the Railroad completed a 12-mile spur to the tiny port town of Whittier. In total, the Alaska Railroad provides regularly scheduled passenger service along 482 miles of track – an expanse greater than the distance between #Boston and #Washington, D.C. #friday #trains #transportation Check this amazing #sunset shot, shared by our equally amazing Director of Chapter Development @wbybanana.
