White and green words on a blue gradient background: TransportationCamp DC Saturday January 6, 2024 George Mason University Arlington Campus in person and online #TCampDC24 with logos for Smart Growth America and Transportation for America at the bottom

Join us on Saturday, January 6, 2024, at George Mason University’s Arlington campus (or on Zoom!) for another year of TransportationCamp DC. Click here to register > >

Every year, transportation enthusiasts get together on the first Saturday in January to share their ideas and map out new possibilities. As cities across the country work to reconnect communities divided by harmful infrastructure, pedestrian fatalities continue to rise, and new technology presents opportunities and challenges for the future of transportation, TransportationCamp is as important as ever.

An annual “unconference,” TransportationCamp is a time for advocates, practitioners, business leaders, professionals, students, and anyone else who might call themselves a “transportation nerd” to gather, share their ideas and perspectives, and take stock of where we’re going and how we got here.

At TransportationCamp, attendees steer the conversation by submitting, voting on, and facilitating breakout sessions on topics of their choice. Whether you’re interested in methods to reduce transportation emissions, bridge divides, or make our streets safer for all, join TransportationCamp to be part of the conversation!

Accessibility at TCamp

People with disabilities face unacceptable systemic barriers , and their voices are critical in the movement towards safe, accessible, and convenient transportation systems. With that in mind, we intend to create a TransportationCamp experience that is inclusive and accessible to everyone. All virtual and hybrid sessions will include closed captioning, we’ll provide a guide to all session facilitators on how to make presentations accessible, and we’ll share additional accommodations as we have them. ASL interpreters will be made available depending on the volume of requests we receive by December 13.

Have questions or concerns about accessibility at TCamp? Would you like to request ASL interpretation? Please reach out to us! Contact Courtney Cole, ccole [at]
