Upcoming Events


YPT-Nashville is excited to announce our February event which includes a train ride on the Music City Star out east to Lebanon for a tour of the massive Bridgestone Distribution Center!  We will start by meeting at Riverfront Station in downtown Nashville @ 4:45PM and then all ride the train to Martha Station.  We will then be shuttled via a bus to the distribution center where we will have a tour preceded by a presentation of the facility.  Afterwards, the group will be shuttled back to Riverfront Station in downtown Nashville getting back around 8PM, so no need to drive out to the tour site!  PIZZA WILL BE PROVIDED FOR ALL IN ATTENDANCE during the presentation.

Date: Thursday, February 16, 2017
Time: 4:45pm CST
Location: Riverfront Station (108 1st Ave S, Nashville, TN);  Tour: Bridgestone Distribution Center (201 Bridgestone Pkwy, Lebanon, TN)

There are four key components of YPT’s program of events.

Networking Events / Transit Oriented Drinks (TOD) – These events are a great way to get to know your fellow transportation professionals and students in a relaxed, informal setting. We meet at various bars and restaurants in Nashville. Networking events generally feature an invited Distinguished Guest, or a special topic. TOD events are located along transit routes.

Distinguished Speaker Series / Leadership Seminars – These seminars are a great way to meet and interact with distinguished leaders in the transportation field. Participants are encouraged to ask questions about the speakers’ work, career path, and for advice to today’s young professionals. Speakers invited to attend include prominent transportation practitioners and leaders.

Technical Tours – These tours offer members the opportunity to explore transportation in practice, and in person.

Board Meetings – These are regularly scheduled meetings of the YPT Nashville Board of Directors. At these meetings, we discuss the group’s goals and strategies and plan events. They are on the first Monday of the month at 5:00 pm. Please contact us if you’d like to attend.

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.
