Following on the success of last year’s event, TransportationCamp New England 2015 will continue to foster open conversation and collaboration between all parties interested in mobility and the radical changes the near-future promises in transportation.
Our goal is to assemble planners, dreamers, programmers, students, and professionals for an exciting day of “un-conferencing.” Unlike a traditional conference, the specific session topics are determined by participants, which provides each attendee an opportunity to lead and shape the event. Therefore, we want to see what you are doing; we want to ask how it will impact our lives; and we want to help you to find answers.
- Bike share applications and technology
- Open source data and standards
- Impacts of autonomous and connected vehicles
- Drones, current applications and future implications
- The science behind Hyperloop -the conceptual high-speed transportation system
- Making data matter
- Improving mobility in Boston (and beyond!)
- Transformative trends in transportation
We are pleased to announce that the keynote speaker at this year’s event will be Richard Davey, former Massachusetts Secretary of Transportation and current CEO of Boston 2024, the nonprofit organization working to bring the 2024 Summer Olympic Games to Boston. Prior to these roles, he also served as General Manager for both the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority and the Massachusetts Bay Commuter Railroad Company.
