Building Livable Communities with Transit

Rail~Volution is a network, movement and conference that brings together passionate people, who want to engage in thoughtful discussion about building livable communities with transit.

Developers, business leaders, civic planners, local elected officials, community advocates, transit operators and private citizens – energized by a mix of ideas, cultures and transit projects unique to the greater Los Angeles region – will participate in 75 workshops and networking sessions to exchange opinions on a broad range of topics including developing rider-friendly bus and core rail systems; utilizing transit planning to rekindle local communities; and implementing new, and old, technologies to enhance mobility and access throughout the region.

The conference happens each year – advocates come from more than 300 communities, towns and regions of all sizes and shapes – to share ideas and breakthroughs, frustrations and inspiration.

The mobility landscape in Los Angeles is undergoing a slow transformation. Long before Los Angeles was known for its car culture, the city boasted one of the most extensive and efficiently operated interurban transit systems in the world.

Today, the region is rediscovering its transportation past to chart its future course.

All in all, it promises to be an informative and inspiring event!  We hope all interested citizens and professionals will consider joining in. WilderUtopia will be there. Register now for the conference or follow it on Facebook and on the website at

See you here in Los Angeles!
