The Society for Vertical Transportation was formed in Cambridge, MA in 2013 for those interested in all types of Vertical Transportation.  Not only do we explore vertical transportation in the cities of Boston, Cambridge, New York, and elsewhere, but we are dedicated to finding and linking the best information available on vertical transportation.  Our library includes a vast array of information on the history, mechanics, and future of vertical transportation.
