PORTLAND – Are you involved in or passionate about public transportation? If so, it’s not too late to join TransportationCamp Oregon 2019 from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., Sunday, September 15 at DoubleTree by Hilton, 1000 NE Multnomah in Portland (registration opens at 7:30 a.m.).

TransportationCamp Oregon 2019 replaces the traditional conference format with an open, forward-thinking event about public transportation issues, innovations, challenges/solutions and more. The day-long event is being held in conjunction with the 4th National Rural & Tribal Technical Assistance Conference.

Unlike a traditional conference, session topics are determined by the participants. This provides attendees the opportunity to lead and shape the event, freely offer ideas and opinions, and help troubleshoot with fellow transit enthusiasts. We will also hear from keynote speakers Jeremy Dalton of Method City and Kevin Chambers of Full Path Transit Technology on Mobility as a Service (MaaS).

Register online in advance ($55 fee includes breakfast and lunch – $30 for students and those also attending the Rural Transit Assistance Program conference).

TransportationCamp Oregon 2019 welcomes planners, software developers, engineers, students, transportation professionals, community members, policy makers, and anyone passionate about transit and mobility.
