If you’ve ever been to an “unconference” like TransportationCamp, you know how much fun it is. And if you haven’t, we invite you to come join us and experience it for yourself. We’ll provide breakfast, lunch, and an evening reception, but it is the attendees themselves who provide the content of the sessions. Last year we had 440 attendees and 48 fantastic sessions – see for yourself on our Hackpad.
This year we have a bonus event in the evening: George Mason University’s Cameron Rian Hays Outside the Box Competition. The top three finalists will present their entries in the auditorium before we throw the doors open to our joint reception. This year we promise we’ll have room for everyone to stay and mingle. The Outside the Box competition is free, but we ask everyone to register separately for it.
Mobility Lab is organizing the event with our friends at AASHTO, Eno Center for Transportation, George Mason University, TransitCenter, Young Professionals inTransportation, and the Institute of Transportation Engineers. We also have some great sponsors onboard who are helping to make TransportationCamp possible: Uber, Cambridge Systematics, Zipcar, LMI Research Institute, Lyft, Kimley-Horn, and GlobeSherpa. And of course since TransportationCamp DC takes place the day before TRB (the National Academy of Sciences’ Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting), you’ll meet people from all over the country.
