About this Event

YPT Toronto and ITE Toronto are excited to be jointly organizing TransportationCamp 2020! This year's event will take place virtually on Zoom on Saturday, October 3rd from 1:00pm to 5:00pm.

This year, our TransportationCamp's theme is: "Our Urban Mobility Future"!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What is a "TransportationCamp"?

The aim of TransportationCamp is to bring together thinkers and doers in the transportation community to openly discuss some of the most pressing transportation topics facing our region.

TransportationCamp is an "unconference" - basically, a conference, but instead of a long day of pre-set programming, it is run by participants like you!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why should I attend TransportationCamp?

TransportationCamp is the event for you if you like talking about: transportation, technology, and the future of mobility in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.

It doesn't matter if you are a planner, engineer, work in tech, policy, or just are passing by with a general interest in transportation; we welcome any and all who will contribute thoughts and ideas.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

How does TransportationCamp work?

Typically, TransportationCamp is a full-day event run in-person. Due to COVID-19, we are moving the event online to Zoom (so you can participate for as little or as much of the event as you want; from the comfort of your own home!).

The day will kick off with a keynote speaker at 1:00pm then lead to a series of break-out sessions until 5:00pm.

The break-out sessions might be a Presentation, Open Discussion, or Brainstorming session. Four break-outs will be run concurrently, so you have the choice of joining whichever ones interest you!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sounds great! How do I participate?

Register for FREE on this page! And spread the word to your friends and colleagues. Registration will be open until October 2 and you will receive all further details to your email.

We need both break-out session leaders and participants!

Interested in leading a break-out session? You can lead a Presentation, Discussion Topic, Brainstorming Session OR a combination of any of the three.

Come prepared to submit your topic to our virtual whiteboard on the day-of. Keep it casual! You don't even need a slide deck! (But you can bring one, if you really want to).

Examples of topics from other camps to get you thinking:

  • What's all the Hype about Hyperloop?
  • Curb your enthusiasm: why we need a digital ecosystem for curbs
  • Designing vehicles for safety of all street users
  • Pedestrian safety and public health
  • Tactical Transit Safety Solutions to Keeping Minorities Safe On Public Transit

We're excited to discuss the future of urban mobility in our region with you!
