Green Transit: Bike, Bus, Train

  1. "Reducing our energy use through smarter transportation habits is now essential." - Vinit Allen, Sustainable World Coalition

    Use your travel time for networking.

      Ask the event to coordinate colleagues taking the same train, or arriving at the airport at the same time.
      The person you share a cab from the airport with might well be your main social contact, leading to more than just an exchange of business cards.
  2. Ask the event or hotel for public transit directions.

      It's good to remind hotels that not everyone drives.
      Some cities, such as Portland and San Francisco, have light rail taking you from the airport to very close to key hotels.
  3. Carry something visible, related to the conference.

      With luck you'll meet colleagues on their way to the event.
