Tune in for the next few days and I'll take you through my own personal experience of the conference. Right now it's all about ensuring that our posters and exhibit materials make it down in one piece. And of course, don't forget a few business cards! One of the best things about TRB is meeting other people with common interests and invaluable experience.
My short list of things to look forward to:
- Learning more about the uses of General Transit Feed Specifications data (GTFS for those prefer alphabet soup), the standardized format agencies all over the county use to share information about their services, at Sunday workshop 185.
- Catching up with members of my former research group, the MIT Regional Transportation Planning and High-Speed Rail Research Group
- Sitting in on a Transportation and Economic Development (ADD10) committee meeting for the first time as a young member
- Finally putting faces to names for collaborators and clients.
