Rail~Volution 2011—Comes to Our Nation’s Capital

Washington, DC
October  16-19, 2011

Washington Marriott Wardman Park Hotel
2660 Woodley Road NW
Washington, DC 20008


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 Washington, DC. 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, OR metropolitan region's 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 effect on communities.
