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!
