7 Day Transit District

Summer 1984 I was hired to coordinate the transportation for an International Conference (the International Society of Music Education) hosted by Eugene, Oregon. Though I was a bit underexperienced for this position, planning went fine, especially for a 20K contract with the Lane Transit District. The budget was tight and I ended up driving too many of the early and late airport shuttles - definitely burning out.

I do remember the closing performance, Stravinsky's 'Firebird'' in the just completed Hult Center. Definitely moving.

I'm not totally sure of the LTD Planner I worked with on this, I believe it was Bergeron? FWIW my area was the only profitable one for the conference organizer.

I was one of two finalists for a similar position with the Goodwill Games in Seattle, but didn't win it. The guy who did would later go on to notoriety at the Atlanta Olympics. My qualifying experience for this event was organizing a Whitewater Slalom race on the nearby McKenzie River, in 1979.

These map graphics are a product of the LTD route booklet design team.
