Rail~Volution Vancouver 2019

For over 20 years, Rail~Volution has been the place to engage in thoughtful discussions with change makers and influencers. It’s the place to share ideas and breakthroughs, frustrations and inspiration about building livable communities with transit. Rail~Volution provides opportunities to learn, connect and expand your network with leaders in the public transportation, transit-oriented development, placemaking and community development fields.


From September 8-11, 2019, the 25th Rail~Volution conference is coming to Vancouver. FYI, it’s the first time the conference has been hosted outside of the U.S.!

Call for Volunteers

A huge part of Rail~Volution’s success is it’s volunteers. Through the volunteer program, more people can access conference learning opportunities and, simultaneously, enhance the conference experience for all attendees by filling critical customer service roles. Most volunteer opportunities will be at the 2019 Conference Hotel, the Hyatt Regency Vancouver, though some positions will require travel off-site.

    I would attend RailVolution as I want to meet, connect, and discuss with professional transit planners on transit planning guidelines, responsibilities as a transit planner especially where rail is involved no matter if it’s high speed rail, commuter rail, or rapid transit, and future transit improvements in various sectors for the present and future with the past considered. Also I would learn from other transit planners and agencies on their transit improvements and services, and new ideas for transit and other transportation modes improvements being discussed whether relevant to rail, relevant to public transit, or relevant to transportation in general. Furthermore, I could share some relevant ideas as a transit enthusiast no matter if they are new ideas never heard of or existing ideas but never implemented in regions like Metro Vancouver.

    I have just completed a planning program in Vancouver this month, and am eager to learn more about the intersection of transportation and land use policy, and especially how they come together to address climate change. I focused my thesis project on how zoning reform in Vancouver could better leverage transit access/provision and I would love to learn more from experts in the field!
