All roads (and rails, sharrows, and BRT corridors) lead to Washington, D.C. this month–if you’re a transit nerd, that is. There’s the Transportation Camp unconference tomorrow, the Transportation Research Board’s annual week-long meeting next week, and dozens of happy hours squeezed in between. Mapzen will be there, and we’d enjoy the chance to meet you, if you happen to be there too.
Transportation Camp attracts participants from a wide variety of fields and interests, from urban planners and transportation engineers to journalists and software engineers. We can’t wait to talk transit data production, collection, and formatting with such a diverse group. If you’re in D.C. and are interested in transit, Mapzen or both, come find me, Drew, Ekta, or Alyssa.
Along with our friends at Conveyal and TransitScreen, we’ll be co-hosting a post-Transportation Camp and pre-TRB happy hour this Sunday evening. We’d love to see you there! More information and RSVP here.
