MOTU@5 | Join us for Nerd Nite!


The first in-person event of Transportation and Utilities Month in celebration of our 5th birthday is in coordination with Nerd Nite Philly!  Check out the event details below:


YOU! Please note that this event does take place in a bar. There is a $5 cover fee.  This allows you to not only listen to the lectures but also access drink and food specials.


Nerd Nite Philly is a monthly set of lectures which occur at Frankford Hall.  Join members of the MOTU Family at Nerd Nite as we raise a glass to bikes, trains, and airplanes.

We are pleased to have a slew of dynamic speakers at Nerd Nite — bring your burning questions about bikes, trains, and airplanes!
