What is TransportationCamp Anyway?

TransportationCamp is an unconference bringing together transportation professionals, technologists, and others interested in the intersection of urban transportation and technology.

Transportation is a major metropolitan issue, with direct impacts on economic strength, environmental sustainability, and social equity. Recent advances in technology—mobile computing, open source software, open data and APIs, and spatial analysis—present an opportunity to improve mobility more immediately and at a lower cost than has ever been possible in the past.

We know that you have thoughts about this, how transportation can be better, and TransportationCampPGH is your place to bring them. All possibilities about the future of mobility are up for grabs, and your ideas - big and small - will power the conversation. Come share with like-minded, leading thinkers and doers who are revolutionizing the transportation field in Western PA and beyond. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find some new friends to move your idea forward.

What’s an unconference?

An unconference is really a people-powered event. You have the ideas, we group them together into sessions. Then we tell you where the sessions will be and people join the ones that interest them the most.

Do I need to be an expert? How prepared should I be?

We welcome experts, but really you just need to care about transportation issues or be nerds about it like us. Do your homework. Or don’t. The important thing is that you bring your ideas and enthusiasm, and engage! Each session is a conversation, not talking heads. Sessions range from informal discussions to full-blown presentations.
