TransportationCamp is an “unconference”. It is a meeting of peers presenting/discussing topics that interest them. At Camp, you explore a large marketplace of ideas, with a focus on transforming mobility services in rural, small urban, regional and large urban areas.
I’ve participated in seven T-camps since the first one, TransportationCamp East in 2011. They are usually held in larger metro areas – NYC, DC, Boston, San Francisco, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, LA, San Francisco, etc. Here’s a short highlight video from DC 2014. I thought we can use the T-Camp format with a focus on Upstate NY, which is very similar to much of America.
· To focus on to rural and urban mobility challenges, solutions and strategies.
· To explore how technologies and better practices can increase peoples’ mobility choices and community livability.
· To increase networking among professionals, advocates and citizens.
· To offer a high quality TransportationCamp in Upstate NY.
