YPT SF Bay Transportation Research Board Travel Award

Award Summary

The Inaugural TRB Travel Award was launched at our kick-off event in January 2014. The Transportation Research Board (TRB) conference in Washington DC is one of the premier networking and professional development events for young transportation professionals. This year, YPT is offering two separate travel scholarships of $500 to offset travel, registration, or accommodation costs for you, our loyal members. We hope that this scholarship will enable more of our membership to attend this conference, which YPT nationally co-sponsors (via the TRB Young Members Council).

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.
