This year, Rail~Volution comes to Portland, Oregon. This is a conference for passionate practitioners—people from more than 300 U.S. communities who believe in the role of land use and transit as equal partners in the quest for greater livability and greater communities. The Mobile Workshops Desk at the conference will play an important role in helping facilitate the twenty one mobile workshops to ensure that attendees have easy access to them.

This is a great Rail~Volution 2010 opportunity for individuals who help make our region a national leader in livability. We invite you to be a part of this experience!
