Rail~Volution 2009 Rides into Boston

October 30-November 1, 2009
Westin Waterfront Hotel
Boston, Massachusetts

Rail~Volution—a conference for those who believe strongly in how land use and transit can create greater livability and greater communities—will be held for the first time in Boston. The conference will bring together practitioners of all kinds interested in:

  • Innovative approaches to transit and other alternative forms of transportation
  • Best practices for land use and transit from around the U.S. and beyond
  • Planning for future growth in their community

The conference will include hands-on workshops that feature case studies and how-to discussions; symposia that provide in-depth explorations of issues facing every community; and inspiring plenary sessions that showcase some of the best livability minds in the country and the world—all for attendees to return home with a palette of new ideas and a toolbox of new strategies for making communities more livable.

Rail~Volution began in 1989 as a series of outreach and advocacy events geared towards developing advocates for the Portland, Oregon metropolitan region's TriMet MAX Light Rail System. In 1995 Rail~Volution became a national conference—the only one of its kind—focused on land use and transit issues and their affect on communities.

Early registration is available through October 5. For more information, see the Rail~Volution website or send an inquiry to:
