After a super successful and highly energetic first TransitCampBayArea, we decided to set the date for TCBA2 for September 13, 2008.
What has happened since #1? Well:
- It was written up in Governing Magazine in their Wiki issue
- Joe Hughes started a really active Transit-Developers Group that now has over 100 members working on really great apps for riders
- I've met with both representatives at BART and Caltrain to discuss ideas brought up during TCBA and they are wanting to see about moving forward on them at TCBA2
- A Get Satisfaction TCBA feedback site was put up that has seen some great ideas to carry forward
That was just from our preliminary and very experimental meetings...so I can't wait to see what the group can do this time! I really hope you'll join us for this one. If you are a transit representative, we need you there. If you are an elected official, your input is necessary. If you are a technologist, bring your talents. If you are a rider or a person who wants to move towards a less car-dependent world, bring it on! All of your voices are necessary to improving the experience of transit in the Bay Area.
Saturday, September 13, 2008 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. SamTrans/Caltrain offices, 1250 San Carlos Avenue, San Carlos, CA MAP
The schedule will be created between 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. with the opening session beginning at 10:00 a.m. Muffins and coffee will be served in the morning and a lunch will be served at 1:00 pm.
p.s. We are still looking for another sponsor...you can donate at the registration site.
p.p.s. if you aren't from the Bay Area and are passionate about Transit...you may want to think about throwing one of these in your back yard. ;)
