2018 Transportation Camp

YPT Seattle hosted our 2nd Annual Transportation Camp at MG2 on August 25th, 2018.


A huge thank you goes out to all the attendees of Seattle’s 2nd Annual Transportation Camp held on August 25th! The unconference went better than we could have asked for with insightful discussion on Seattle’s rich transportation past, and what might be in store for the future. From autonomous vehicles to streetcars, viaducts and bikeshare, no mode was forgotten. For some of the highlights checkout our blog and twitter feed.



























YPT Seattle & YPT NYC exchange program: 

YPT Seattle was selected to participate in an exchange program with YPT New York City. Four members from each chapter traveled to each other’s cities to attend TransportationCamp and participate in insider transportation activities. Our crew Mila Lassuy, Shawn Lindabury, Luke Watry, and Jonathan Ahn just returned from their NYC trip and had a blast. Thanks to YPT NYC for hosting and YPT International for funding the exchange.

The Mission

Provide a welcoming space and open structure where new ideas are explored, connections are made, and insights across fields are found.

The Speaker

While we've tag-lined this conference "The Future of Transportation," the day will kick off with a unique look to the past.


Jennifer Ott is an environmental historian with a particular interest in Seattle's history of moving dirt, rerouting waterways, and leveling hills. She is the assistant director at HistoryLink.org, the free online encyclopedia of Washington state history and co-wrote Waterway: The Story of Seattle’s Locks and Ship Canal with David B. Williams. She has also written for HistoryLink.org, Seattle magazine and the Oregon Historical Quarterly.

The Program

We provide the unconference structure, you provide the content. The session schedule will be created with you.

Sessions may be facilitated debates, open discussions, or presentations. The unconference format keeps us flexible to offer whatever knowledge sharing platform you desire. Be a part of shaping the explosive pace of change in the world of urban design and transportation, including disruptive technology, mobility management, streets as public space, equity & environmental justice, transformative policy frameworks, innovative community engagement, and a host of other issues. Bring your ideas and lead or collaborate on a session!

How do I propose a session?

No proposal needed! Bring your presentation, handout, lego model, whatever medium you prefer that conveys your idea, and we'll fit you in a session that makes sense, or create one around your subject. Sounds cool huh?

You are encouraged (but not required) to bring presentation, or half finished projects to present or lead discussions on. The unconference format is extremely low stress. Not only is this an opportunity to share your work or ideas, it's an opportunity to build your presentation skills, facilitation skills, speaking skills, etc.
