The annual Rail~Volution conference brings great thinking together about every aspect of transit (bus, bus rapid transit (BRT), and rail), related mobility options, and community development. The 2018 conference will be here, in Pittsburgh, PA, October 21-24, at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown.
Rail~Volution is excited to be coming to a “legacy” city, in the eastern half of the nation. Pittsburgh has a robust transit system with numerous modal options, including dedicated busways, light rail transit, bus routes, incline railways, and a new BRT project. Pittsburgh also has a strong bicycling culture, a very high mode share for walking to work, and a lot of energy around new technology and sustainability. The potential for mobility-oriented development around new and existing routes (BRT to bike trails and more) is enticing.
Register now to be part of four days of networking and learning: 20 Mobile Workshops, 75+ workshop sessions, and numerous social opportunities to meet the people in the public, private and nonprofit sectors who plan, build, finance, and advocate for livable communities in Pittsburgh and around the country.
New this year: the Tech Tank Innovation Challenge, focused on new technologies that enhance livability. Mobility options are changing, but transit (bus, BRT and rail) is still the backbone of connected, livable communities.
