A note from our Board Chair
Happy New Year YPTCHI!
I hope everyone had a safe, enjoyable holiday season with minimal travel hassles. My holiday trip home was CTA Blue Line to a flight out of O’Hare, and return trip was Amtrak to Union Station and CTA bus home from there. I like to keep it multimodal.
If you are looking for a New Year’s resolution, make it increased networking within the transportation field. At YPT events and through our Facebook page, you can find like-minded people or, alternately, individuals with a different point of view than yours. Whoever you want to know better, it’s likely they’ve been to one of our events. And when you consider what puts the ‘Y’ in YPT, there’s a good chance you’ll meet the next generation of innovators and industry leaders, just by extending a hand or swapping cards.
This will be an event-filled year, including a bar crawl on the new 606 trail, guest speakers, and the usual mix of unique transit facility and bike tours that you can only enjoy as a member of YPT Chicago chapter.
We look forward to seeing you during a safe, productive 2016. If you have any questions, ideas, etc., please don’t hesitate to contact me at the email address below.
