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

Networking Events
These are a great way to get to know your fellow transportation professionals and students in a relaxed, informal setting. We meet at various venues in the San Francisco Bay Area. Networking events generally feature an invited distinguished guest who is a leader in transportation. YPT SF Bay events are free, unless otherwise noted.

Leadership Seminars
Seminars present an opportunity meet and interact with distinguished leaders in transportation. Participants are encouraged to ask questions about speakers’ work, career path, and for advice to today’s young professionals. Speakers invited to attend have included prominent transportation practitioners.

Technical Tours
Tours offer members the opportunity to explore transportation in practice.

Board Meetings
The YPT SF Bay board of directors meets regularly. At these meetings, we discuss the group’s goals and strategies and plan events.

YPT SF Bay’s goal is to hold large events with guest speakers quarterly, as well as smaller more intimate events every four to six weeks.  These can include things like technical tours, seminars, trivia nights, or the always fun YPT Beers with Peers events, where you can learn about the exciting things your peers are working on!

If you have any ideas for other types of events, if you’d like to lead a YPT Beers with Peers event, or for more information, please feel free to contact us!

Let's highlight another part of the #transportation industry - passenger aviation - that so many of us rely on for business travel and personal adventures. How many #young #professionals do we have in the #aviation sector? #transport #adventure #cloudy☁️ @bwi_airport 🎶Rivers and roads, rivers and roads. Rivers til I reach you.🎶 @chesapeakeandohiocanal #bikes #canals #transportation #throwback #travel #adventure 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.
