Attached is the Agenda to the 511 International Best Practices Symposium.


This is the last chance to register for the International 511 Symposium in Philadelphia on August 20-21, 2007.  It is not too late.  Representatives of State DOTs, transit agencies, and metropolitan transportation organizations with traveler information responsibilities cannot afford to miss this opportunity.  Learn how transit information is being integrated into 511 Systems.  Learn how Arizona and the State of Sonora, Mexico, collaborated on a bilingual, cross boarder application.  Learn how London Transport information is integrated into traveler information in England.  Learn effective practices for acquiring and disseminating information, interoperability, forging institutional partnerships, the latest in communications media, and how to meet the customer needs of multiple transit agencies.  Whether you are planning a new 511 deployment or upgrading features, the people you need to talk to will be there.  The international roundtable is unique and cannot be missed if you have decisions to make about 511.


The Transit 511:  International Best Practices Symposium, will be held August 20-21, 2007 at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel, located at 1200 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA.  It will be hosted by the American Public Transportation Association and is sponsored by the USDOT Joint Programs Office and the Federal Transit Administration
