TransportationCamp Ithaca 2019

Saturday, April 6, 2019 at 8:00am to 4:30pm

Klarman Hall, Cornell University 232 East Avenue, Ithaca, NY

TransportationCamp (T-Camp) is an unconference. Participants propose sessions - discussions, presentations, demonstrations, whatever you think of. We'll select and schedule sessions immediately after breakfast. The program schedule will include five, one-hour periods of up to ten concurrent sessions. Sessions are held in classrooms with the full Internet, A/V capabilities. We will hold a wrap-up session at 4 pm. T-Camp works well. It's high energy, promotes fresh thinking, and fueled with good food (breakfast & lunch).

Ideas Proposed so far include:

  • The evolution of Mobility-as-a-Service for small urban and rural communities. The session would feature participation from Scotland (via web) and Americans.
  • Demonstrations of new technology - including on-demand technology with dispatcher and driver apps.
  • Discussion of the first-last mile and hybrid fixed-route/demand response services.
  • Explore multi-modal transportation's feasibility and best practices for small urban and rural communities.  
  • How to best serve at-risk populations in rural, low-density areas with alternative forms of transportation that are convenient, and constant. 
  • How should the bike infrastructure best be improved in the City of Ithaca? 
  • Creating a proposal for a Statewide Mobility Management Program (beginning with the MassMobility model) for the 2020 state budget.  An idea is to set aside $200,000 per county for creating and operating a mobility management program. County would apply, individually or jointly, to organize a county or regional program.

Please come prepared to actively engage, network, share and have fun. If you have any questions, please contact us. We look forward to seeing you on a sunny April 6th in Ithaca.
