Attend the Rail Conference
What’s not to be missed at the 2010 APTA Rail Conference, June 6-9 in Vancouver, BC?
Sustainability is front and center at the June 7 luncheon, where Gordon Price, who oversees the urban design, sustainability, and community development programs at Simon Fraser University, will serve as keynote speaker—and use stunning photographs to illustrate his talk. To learn more about this recipient of the Plan Canada Award from the Canadian Institute of Planners and The Smarty Award from Smart Growth BC, go to his web site.
Also, make sure you attend the June 9 closing session on safety, where the keynoter will be Dr. Rick Hartley, a principal engineer in the Emergency, Safety, and Health Division for B&W Pantex in Amarillo, TX, whose specialty is safety in the nuclear industry. Plus there are technical tours, our host TransLink’s session on its Canada Line, and two sessions on positive train control.
