YPT-NYC Holiday Party: This Wednesday, 12/18!

YPT-NYC Annual Holiday Party

Join us for drinks and appetizers this Wednesday, 12/18! The new 2019-2020 Board looks forward to meeting everyone and thanking last year’s Board for a job well done.

The party is free but you must be a member to attend. If you bring a friend, and they become a YPT member at the happy hour, you both get a free drink!

When: Wednesday, December 18th, 6-8 PM
Where: The Half Pint, 76 W 3rd St, between Thompson St and LaGuardia Pl


We thank our generous sponsor, HDR, for helping us make this another fun event for all!

Book Club

We are happy to announce our latest book club selection, Policing the Open Road: How Cars Transformed American Freedom. Author Sarah Seo chronicles how the rise of the car, the symbol of American personal freedom, inadvertently led to ever more intrusive policing—with disastrous consequences for racial equality in our criminal justice system. We will give away a copy of the book to three lucky recipients at the party.

Take Our Survey!

Please take our short survey so we know how we are doing. We want to provide opportunities for professional development, networking, and most importantly, fellowship with professionals, academics, and enthusiasts in the transportation field.

Coming Soon

We look forward to providing inclusive and engaging programming in the coming year. We will soon be launching a member profile series, book club, networking lunches, game nights, and many other events, so stay tuned, and see you at our holiday party!
