All Aboard Transportation Planning Division
TPD moves APA! With a robust membership base consisting of transportation planners across the US and the world, the American Planning Association Transportation Planning Division facilitates the exchange of knowledge to efficiently move people and goods, shape urban form, enhance economic vitality and improve quality of life. The APA TPD collaborates with other APA Divisions and other professional groups to advocate for the transportation planning profession and promote mobility in the communities where we live and work.
APA TPD Members:

Thank you for the many conversations you've had to help us identify pain points our members are facing and brainstorming solutions. We appreciate everything you do and your dedication to planning and APA!

NPC21 Going Virtual
NPC21 Going Virtual
Please read the announcement below from APA Leadership:
The format and locale for the 2021 National Planning Conference has been confirmed — NPC21 will be fully digital, May 5-7, 2021. Due to the ongoing pandemic and COVID-19 public gathering restrictions currently in place in Boston, NPC21 will take place as a virtual event.
While we are disappointed to miss all that Boston has to offer, we feel this decision is the best option for maintaining the health of our attendees and staff, and allows us to focus fully on planning an energizing and immersive digital conference experience, built around today's needs. We are very grateful to the NPC Planning Committee and our local partners in Boston for their time, work, and expertise dedicated to the conference and look forward to bringing a bit of Boston to NPC21 online.
The NPC21 Call for Reviewers and Call for Proposals are both open now. We're looking for new and diverse voices, unique insights, and innovative, practical approaches that enable the planning community to successfully adapt to a rapidly changing world. With new ways to get involved, it's easier than ever to participate in the conference program — we invite you to join us in building and experiencing NPC21.
