The Young Professionals in Transportation (YPT) Baltimore chapter, formerly known as the Professional Association of Young Transportationists (PAYT), was founded in February of 2013 to provide a place for networking, education and professional development of young individuals in the transportation industry. We welcome members from the public and private sectors alike, and our members represent the gamut of stakeholders in Maryland transportation employees in aviation, highways, ports, transit, bike/ped, community leadership, and other public positions.YPT Baltimore does not recognize any definition of “young”. If you believe you would fit into our organization, then you qualify to participate.

Our mission is “Connecting transportation professionals to collaboratively innovate and present informed solutions to challenges facing the transportation industry.”

Our events seek to uphold this mission, and we are always open to input from members and friends for Quarterly topics, field trip and tour ideas, or other activities. As YPT Baltimore continues to grow, we envision holding quarterly networking events, educational seminars, and ultimately leveraging our industry acumen and network to develop white papers and presentations.

YPT International and its local chapters are a federally-recognized 501(c)(6) non-profit entity.
